Kind of Blue - The #1 Jazz Album of all time - and for good reason. In addition to being a flat-out terrific album, it has one other unique characteristic. It works both as background music AND as music you can let yourself sink into it - or let it go back into the background. Pretty interesting.
Cool cats...Artist and illustrator Jim Flora is well-known for his graphic album covers designed for Columbia Records and RCA Victor in the 1940s and 50s. This fab cover, Mambo for Cats published in 1955, is one of his most famous works. So cool! www.moderncat.net/2008/06/24/mid-century-moderncat-jim-flora-artist-and-illustrator/
