(Here’s a repost of a favorite video – a recreation of some great Blue Note album covers, from August, 2010.)
What a cool idea: take some classic Blue Note album covers from the 1960’s, and recreate them with live action and animation. What a big job.
Check out the original covers below.
The video was created by Bante to promote the Bellavista Social Club‘s concert season. Here is another wonderfully-designed music video he/she/they did.
It would be appropriate at this time to offer a four beat rest moment of silence for iconic jazz photographer Herman Leonard, who passed away this week. Leonard invented (accidentally) a style of side lighting for photographing jazz musicians in clubs that perfectly captured the feeling of the clubs, the players and the music.
