One of six records in RCA's Holiday Abroad series, all of which are illustrated by Mozelle Thompson (1958). This was a collaboration with Sabena Belgian World Airlines. This image is pinned from the blog of a watercolor painter. She's under the impression that Mozelle Thompson is a woman. She attributes a few other illustrations, which are uncredited, to the artist. A few of these could possibly be Thompson's work, others are definitely not.
1969 musical feat. Muhammad Ali as Buck. Illustration by Mozelle Thompson. Description reads 'A militant black lecturer addresses a meeting organized by a black political group in this musical adaptation of Joseph Dolan Tuotti's play Big Time Buck White.' Unfortunately there is no record album to accompany the production. I WISH!
Today I came across the December 1968 issue of Boys' Life Magazine. It includes a three page story by Elizabeth Borton De Trevino, Noche Buena, with illustrations by Mozelle Thompson. It's not what I was searching for, but I'm not mad at it. The bold black brush strokes are definitely reminiscent of the Ives album, which I think stands out from a lot of Thompson's album covers and also was nominated for the 1967 Grammy.
Gerry Mulligan Meets Johnny Hodges. One of the four Gerry Mulligan albums on Verve reissued in the 1960's with Mozelle Thompson artwork. One of the Jazz album covers illustrated by Mozelle Thompson that I'll have on display next month during the Pittsburgh JazzLive Festival.
