Paul's all Jam-cam quick pic suits Zoot, way swell, pray tell.

Thank you for this beautiful photograph.
Now all we're missing is the sound (-:
That must have been an awesome concert.

Nice work as always, Marc! I come from the ancient school of thought that says people should get credit for what they do. Paul's photo looked oddly familiar, and I recognized that it has been reprinted with no photo credit on the front and back sleeves of a Classic Jazz CD reissue, "Zoot Sims and Bucky Pizzarelli." Reviewing that CD for Cadence, I commented on the oddity of the photo -- with a bassist prominent -- for a CD that is tenor-guitar duets. I hope, at the very least, that Paul got paid for the use of his glorious photo!

Michael, My brother, a photographer, assures me that getting paid for reuse of work can be as difficult for photographers as for musicians - and of course if the other party is a jazz reissue label one wonders if even the musicians got paid. Incidentally, there is a better Zoot-Bucky duo album on Storyville called "Elegiac," recorded live on 11/06/80. Remastered from cassette, the sound isn't bad, and the 70 minutes of music are exceptional. The cover artist is credited and the cooperation of Bucky and Zoot's estate are noted.
