The latest contribution from yours truly, over on the Rocksoft blog from the series called Cover Art.

Art Blakey and The Jazz Messengers‘ 1964 release “Indestructible

k1-22If this doesn’t epitomize an era, then I don’t know what does. More than a half of a century later, this shit still spells ‘i don’t give a fuck about your life’ harder than your favorite rapper’s pantalones. And whoever drew up the font for the album name deserves at least 50% of the profit from this record because you know dudes are just buying this because it looks so ridiculously fresh. Goddamn, let that cigarette burn you son of a bitch, you deserve it.

P.S. This album isn’t by any means Blakey’s best, but his supporting cast would give you a beat down in the pharmaceutical line at CVS in a heartbreak. But you wouldn’t know about that.
