Fantastic.. what a wonderful way to follow the evolution of Wes...a lot of today's musicians can learn from him..which is to remember that Jazz is also about popular song..

Wes' Riverside albums might not have sold as well, but many are classics! Of the Verve albums, whatever there merits, only "Smokin' at the Half Note" reached the same artistic heights (to the best of my knowledge and opinion.) However, the very best Wes album may well be "Live in Paris, 1965" on Definitive Records (some of which was previously released under various titles by various labels.)

That's feeling!

Looks like a great set--I wish they'd taken the opportunity to pay homage to some of those classic CTI covers in the package design, though.

"A Day In The Life" would be the perfect candidate for your "oddball album cover" series, Marc ;)
