    Before he started designing record covers, Tom Hannan first moved to New York to attend the Hans Hofmann School on a painting scholarship. His album art often includes painterly backgrounds. Even the type is treated like a brush on this cover. Hannan worked mostly for Bethlehem Records and Prestige Records, but this is one of his few covers for Blue Note.
