Zoot Sims - If I'm Lucky (1977 vinyl LP If I'm Lucky)

 

Zoot Sims - If I'm Lucky (1977 vinyl LP If I'm Lucky)

"Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing, only a signal shown, and a distant voice in the darkness; So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another, only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence." - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 

 

From the vinyl LP "If I'm Lucky" - an album by saxophonist Zoot Sims with pianist Jimmy Rowles, recorded in 1977 for the Pablo label.

John Haley "Zoot" Sims (October 29, 1925 – March 23, 1985) was an American jazz saxophonist, playing mainly tenor but also alto (and, later, soprano) saxophone. He first gained attention in the "Four Brothers" sax section of Woody Herman's big band, afterward enjoying a long solo career, often in partnership with fellow saxmen Gerry Mulligan and Al Cohn. 

 

I do not own the copyright to the music, the recording and the photos. (Image post and video art were appropriated from the original album.) This video is posted for educational use under Section 17 U.S. Code §107. Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use. 

 

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.
