The Chet Baker Sextet Music Records (Italy) A Pacific Jazz Session from 1954 featuring Chet Baker (trumpet), Bob Brookmeyer (valve trombone), Bud Shank (baritone saxophone), Russ Freeman (piano), Carson Smith (bass), Shelly Manne (drums). Stella by Starlight, I’m Glad There is You, Tommyhawk and Dot’s Groovy. I’m a fan of this EP cover design by Gian G. Greguoli. Nicely captures the reflective, romantic mood of the music.
“A Wonderful Time” The Whelchel Family There are so many of these local Christian music records in dollar bins around the country, but some covers rise above and scratch one’s aesthetic itch to please on a higher level. This one is rich in its simplicity and earnestness. Also the fashion and hair and girth.
