Over the last 50 years these four incredible musicians have become living treasures to the jazz world. I first met them in a private concert for Monty Kay, President and co founder of Little David Records. The place was a small Jazz club in Santa Monica California and their performance was unbelievable. Milt Jackson, Connie Kay and I bonded immediately, they conveyed what they were saying with the new album “In Memoriam” and how critical it was that we capture that messaging in the cover.
At that moment there was no question
that Drew Struzan should do the finish and the piece speaks for itself… its Iconic.
