Be-Bop Jazz.

n.p.: Dial Records, 1948.

Item #SKB-10788

Three-record set of 78 rpm records by Charlie Parker (Parker's first appearance on a 78 rpm), Miles Davis and others enclosed in a gatefold jacket. The cover features a splendid illustration by Wallace Berman, his first published work (Support the Revolution p. 175). Berman did this drawing when he was a teenager, but selected it for use on this cover when he was 20. Small abrasion to cover not affecting the design, modest edge wear to bottom right corner of cover, but a bright, fresh copy overall. Scarce item from ground zero of Berman's career when he was a young, zoot-suit-wearing hipster jazz aficionado.

Price: $650.00
