Cover Art Of The Month - Feb 99
Eddie Cano and His Sextet - Deep In A Drum LP
Slap those skins! Whatta gorgeous LP cover - a prime example of why CDs will never come close to the visual glory of the old long-players for cover art. Musically, this isn't really an exotica type of record - it's a little more 50s jazzy, but the music does have some high points. So is this shot a composite, or did they actually cut out a photo of a voluptuous gal and glue her onto the drum for this picture? I dunno, but either way RCA came up with a handsome effect.
