Some Favorite "Album" Covers

Earlier this week I was raving about the cover art for Another Shade of Blue by Lee Konitz. In the often neglected category of cover art here are some examples that impress both the ears and the eyes. The sonic content is often deeply compelling while the visual material is a striking fit:

DaveDouglas/Tiny Bell Trio: The Tiny Bell Trio

Elliott Sharp/Orchestra Carbon: Abstract Repressionism: 1990-1999

Eric Dolphy: Out To Lunch

Array Music: Chroma

The Bill Frisell Band: Where In The World?
Charlie Haden/Liberation Music Orchestra: Liberation Music Orchestra
