1973 Miles Davis Jazz at the Plaza

Posted by talesinthesun on December 8, 2008

1973-miles-davis-jazz-at-the-plazaIt seems that musicians that have very artistic music also let that flow into their covers as well.  This 1973 MIles Davis album is the release of a 1958 concert at the Plaza Hotel.  The sextet formed of : Miles Davis – trumpet; John Coltrane – tenor saxophone; Cannonball Adderley – alto saxophone; Bill Evans – piano; Paul Chambers – bass; Jimmy Cobb – drums.

The album was released on Coumbia records and a second album by Duke Ellington and his orchestra was released in 1973 as well with the same artwork.  I am currently searching for the artist and cover designer.
