Welcome to the seventh in a series of ten postings which share my recently found Jazz Journal magazines from the early 1960's. The cover star for the July 1962 edition is Lucky Thompson. Thompson was a jazz saxophonist, born in 1924 in South Carolina. Unconventional by the standards of his contemporaries, he was suspicious of the music business, being quoted as describing record companies and promoters as parasites or vultures.
