We love jazz and graphic designer Milton Glaser (born 1929). These two things meet in the set of album covers he created for Columbia Records Jazz Odyssey series.
It was around 1964 when young graphic designer was approached by Columbia Records to visualize history of jazz in the series of three compilation records. He used colorful style illustration in which energy of black music is so evident. Music and dancing is melted into the festival of colors and organic forms.
Five years later he used the similar creative principe for Blue Roots compilation created for Poppy Records.
