I have to hand it to you Marc. Pete Turner was always my favorite photographer of jazz album art. I used to buy the CTI material just for the covers.(Well I was always partial to Wes and Joe Farrell) I believe his use of color was without peer! Its so good to have him recognized as an important part of the evolution and history of jazz. Hats off to you and my best to Pete!

Hi, Any suggestions on how to get a decent size print of the "blue/green" Wave album cover other than limited edition $3600+? Many thanks::::Jeff K.
