David Stone Martin created more than two hundred album covers during the 1950s for the Norman Granz labels, Clef, Norgran and Verve.
An encyclopedic compendium of album covers designed by David Stone Martin for Gene Krupa, Oscar Peterson, Art Tatum and an army of jazz stars. Beginning his career in the mid-1940s, Martin used pen, brush and ink in drawings as searching and fluid as a soprano sax solo. A portfolio of more recent portraits is also included in this stunning book.
