I am a great fan of Jazz. Charles is not. Therefore, it's a bit of a task getting him to listen to or even admire the vinyl covers that are so artistically created!
From John Coltrane, Chet Baker, Dexter Gordon and many others, their album covers combine art and graphics together in a very modern art environment. Yet somehow, through these covers, they found a way to visually represent their music in a genius way!
Beyond the music and graphics, the fashion choices by these great artosts became hugey influential. Their outfits were simple lines but tailored. You could say it's another dimension of the Ivy look, but cool not in the graduate way.
