Osvaldo Golijov's cover job



Big thank you to Serenade in Green for noticing that Gy├Ârgy Ligeti was not the only contemporary composer influenced by Bill Evans. Now see some more gorgeous, and original, album covers here.
Undercurrents by Bill Evans and guitarist Jim Hall was first released on a Blue Note LP in 1963. Osvaldo Golijov's Oceana was released by Deutsche Grammophon in July 2007.

More on the cover job? Your readers might like to know that the photo was taken in 1947 by an American fashion photographer, Toni Frisell.

Known as Lady Floating in the Water, it was shot at Weeki Wachee Springs, Florida and appeared in Harper's Bazaar magazine in December 1947.
