Jazz Journal - Lucky Thompson, July 1962

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.

Jazz Journal - Coleman Hawkins, February 1962

We're up to number six in my series of ten Jazz Journal postings. Today we go back in time to February 1962, and it's the turn of Coleman Hawkins to be the cover star. I'm a bit stretched for time today to reserach and provide a summary, so instead here's a link to Coleman Hawkins information.
