I know some of you have – as I do – a faible for idiosyncratic r’n'b saxophonist Lynn Hope. Hope was born in Birmingham, Alabama on September 26, 1926 and nobody seems to know what ever became of him (or do you?).
Down in Otto’s archives I found some gorgeous photos of Lynn. These were published in an unidentified publication – which therefore is also undated. I decided to present them here.
Originally there were more than these four photographs – but they were on the respective backsides of these photographs, and I do not know how to get rid of the glue. If someone has these, I would be glad to get a copy from you! Also: Does anyone know the original publication?
