Iconic Jazz Album Design
Album cover art serves to illuminate and sell the packaged music. Often times it panders to the worst

Larry Young - Unity
Miles Davis - On the Corner
Grant Green - Soundtrack to The Final Comedown
Thelonious Monk - Underground
Blue Note Records has released a book that highlights some other great selections.
