Poor Miss Creveling is made to look (on the cover of her one and only album) as if she's wearing an Elizabethan collar -- you know, the thing you have to put around Fluffy's neck after a traumatic visit to the vet so she won't gnaw at her sutures. Art directors can be inexplicable, and that's my most generous adjective. Thanks for sharing this absurdity! Cheers, Michael

It was probably the same team of art directors who designed the album cover for "The Arrival of Victor Feldman." This is the one that has Victor posing in the bow of a rowboat on a beach at surf's edge while Stan Levey and Scott LaFaro (dressed as sailors) pose on the shore beside the boat!
PS It's a great album, especially because we have so few recordings of LaFaro's bass playing.

hmmm. what gives...? you always offer lots of bits & pieces, of a Sunday post. this one has a paltry three parts, and you don't even give us a sample of all the Sloane emails mentioned in passing. c'mon, Marc--we're all jazz fans here; we can take it!


This team works out well!! most of there release are going good in the market expecting more from them for us to get entertained.
