Pete Turner - My Heroes (cont.)

And speaking of Jazz... PT's latest book "The Color of Jazz showcases 100 covers and their art in close to original size; many of the covers are rare and out-of-print, now collector's items, and connect to a who's who of musical legends—from Count Basie, John Coltrane, and Stan Getz, to Quincy Jones, Freddie Hubbard, and Steely Dan. Turner's covers set new standards for this medium and transformed albums into art objects, sought after both for the music they contain and the cover art they display."

Through his constant exploration of bold color combined with bold graphics Pete Turner has earned a special place in the history of photogrpahy. To learn more about him click here.
