Since Creed Taylor readily agreed with your assertion that "in the mid-1950s, producing didn’t end in the engineer's booth," you ought to have asked him why his original Bethlehem album cover of Chris Connor sings Lullabys of Birdland contained that egregiously misspelled word. Even if a jazz record producer's budget in those days wouldn't support hiring a proofreader, surely there was a dictionary available at the New York Public Library?
