I guess I have to be a bit of a grinch here, and say that while some of the CTI coves are nice, and a few are even compelling, as artistic expressions they just do not come up to those done by Reid Miles for Blue Note. Reid created a whole new language for BN's covers. I would also rank the work of Gene Deitch or Jim Flora higher than Turner. Perhaps my view is prejudiced by the fact that too often the music inside the CTI covers was nothing special.

Lost & Sound

Thank you very much for these great posts about Pete Turner. I have a few CTI albums and always loved the cover graphics. I'm also fascinated by the Wes Montgomery photos. It was very interesting to read about the man behind the covers.
