Synopsis:

Collects legendary animator/cartoonist’s covers for a record magazine, as well as his comic starring the record collector “The Cat.”

On the long road to becoming an Oscar-winning animation director, Gene Deitch became an intense jazz fan. At the age of 21, he discovered The Record Changer magazine, a jazz fan magazine filled with obsessive, scholarly, and purist essays about jazz as well as listings of hard-to-find jazz albums. Every jazz swinger in the ’40s was called a cat (as in “cool cat”), so Gene Deitch created a cartoon feature for Record Changer titled “The Cat,” which quickly became a fixture of the magazine. He also started drawing the covers, which graced almost every issue from 1945 to 1951 along with “The Cat.” Deitch’s stylistically virtuoso images exquisitely embodied the essence of the 1950s hipster, and was a visual paean to the joy of collecting records and appreciating jazz. The Cat on a Hot Thin Groove collects all of Deitch’s Record Changer work in one gorgeous, coffee-table art book, with commentary and reminiscences by Deitch himself. Originally published in 2003 in hardcover and out-of-print for almost a decade, this first-ever paperback edition will delight a new generation of fans. Yes

About the Author: Gene Deitch has lived in Prague for the last 30 years with his wife. He is the father of underground cartoonist Kim Deitch.
