Smooth operator

IMG_8265

“Smooth Sarah” Sarah Vaughan  Mercury Records EP (UK)  A cool 1959 EP of the divine Sarah Vaughan in a moment of repose – maybe listening to the playback at a recording session or backstage at at club gig .  Smoking and cigarette smoke are a recurring image in the history of jazz photography and therefore found on many classic record covers.  (Check our out “smoking section” for more!).
