Album Cover Art Wednesday: Picnic Suite

Jazz-Classical crossovers were the rage in the 1980’s. This album features jazz pianist/composer Claude Bolling and classical flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal and guitarist Alexandre Lagoya. The three players had something in common: they were all French. Perhaps that explains the weird menu at their picnic.

The cover art is by the prolific illustrator Roger Huyssen who executed nearly 100 album covers in his career.
