1975 Freddie Hubbard Liquid Love

Posted by talesinthesun on December 2, 2008

1975-freddie-hubbard-liquid-loveFreddie Hubbard was a jazz trumpeteeer getting his start in 1958 and then appeared on his or others albums  through 2003.  Hubbard appeared with the jazz greats including MIles Davis, Thelonius Monk, Herbie Hancock and on and on.

For this album, the artwork was created by Lou Beach.  Beach created countless album covers using his collage method.  Other covers include David Sanborn, BLink 182 and Weird al Yonkovic.  Oddly enough the Liquid Love cover does not appear on his website.  It may be due to his dislike of the large lettering that he said overpowered the image.  Even with the large typography, the art is what caught my eyeand make this cover one of my favorites.
