Following the publication of "The Cover Art of `Blue Note'" and "California Cool", this book by the same authors returns to the American East Coast of the 1950s and 1960s to examine the jazz album covers of the "Prestige", "Atlantic" and "Riverside" labels. The hard-edged, straight-ahead playing of New York's jazz musicians, such as John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Thelonius Monk, Cannonball Adderley and Bill Evans, was reflected in the moody, monochromatic photography, quirky graphics and bold typography of the record covers. The look, like the sound, was intelligent, disciplined and sophisticated. The book features the best of these covers - style classics which have stood the test of time and remain as influential today as when they first appeared.
