The Blue Note Covers of Reid Miles: His Eye for Space
"Blue Note moved to 47 West 63rd Street, above the Empire Hotel, in July 1957 and stayed there until 1961, when it moved two blocks downtown to the same block that housed Atlantic and Roulette. This blog post pays tribute to that address, with some of the great Reid Miles covers that he created for the label with a bold and outrageous use of space (not something you can really do with the scaled-down CD covers). Miles was a design genius in so many ways and his use of space (like any great jazz soloist) was a key attribute."
