David Stone Martin
"Jazz Artiste Extraordinaire"

Perhaps the most famous and collectable artist of the jazz idiom - David Stone Martin painted hundreds of wonderful record album covers throughout the classic 50's jazz era. He also designed the original labels for Clef, Norgran, Down Home, Verve and Progressive.

Born David Livingstone Martin. He graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago and soon after met Norman Granz, and their relationship flourished. He also illustrated beautiful books, posters, and magazine covers, but this series of Like Wow will focus on his record covers. Three formats are displayed : long playing albums, seven inch ep's, and 78 rpm albums.

When viewing his works, a delightful aspect to look for is his creative use of hand drawn lines. They trace the image with finesse in both positive and negative space. This gives his subject matter a distinct personality.
