Blue Note Album Covers in Motion

I really enjoyed this video tribute to the legacy of Reid Miles. The piece was conceived to promote a series of summer jazz concerts at the Bella Vista Social Pub in Siena, Tuscany. If you are unfamiliar with Reid’s design work for Blue Note, Graphicology offers a side by side comparison of the reimagined covers with the original album art.

Most enjoyable – thanks!

Does anyone know what piece of jazz is playing during the video tribute?

“So Tired” by Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers (Night in Tunisia).

Reid Miles is in my Top 5 designers of all time. Great video!

(& it’s not the title of the song Ian ;)

Great treatment and idea. I’ve always liked the Blue Note stuff and seeing it in motion adds another dimension!
