I hope its OK to create this thread here, I hope so.
Many members here love their jazz and,to me an often overlooked element of the Bluenote label is the wonderfully original ,yet themed, cover art.
The way Miles almost predicted the recording sessions to present the record owner with an image of what was to come, is genius.
Ofcourse the use of Francis Wolffs photos makes the designs complete.
The aim of this thread is to invite you to post your favourite Reid Miles design with a note of why.
Love the perspective and the use of lower case with very few colours.
This has to be one of my favourites - captures the spirit of the album well. Actually had the privilege to speak with Sam when he was in his 80s and talk briefly about his BN covers. His favourite was ‘A New Conception’, being chuffed that it had won awards for design.
