Bernie Privin - I'm Going to Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter (1956 Vinyl LP”)

“I haven’t mastered my instrument by far—but if I had a million dollars, I’d still play the trumpet. And I wish I had the million, incidentally! Or as I told someone—I’ll never marry poor again! But really, I’m very grateful for what I do. It’s been rewarding spiritually, monetarily, the people I’ve met, the places I’ve visited, all the beautiful things it has afforded me. And the friends I’ve made, and continue to make every day.”  Bernie Privin  

From the Vinyl LP "Brothers and Other Mothers Vol. 2”, 1956 recording 

Bernard Privin (February 12, 1919, New York City – October 8, 1999, New York City) was an American jazz trumpeter.  He was a lead and jazz trumpet player with Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey, and the Glenn Miller Army bands. After his Army discharge, he joined the CBS staff orchestra, where he remained for 25 years.

As much as possible, I attempted to remove most of the pops and crackles from the original vinyl album.  I also remastered the sound to be able to compete with most current preferences for listening to modern music.

Hope you enjoy.
