Thanks for this listen dogon ad . . . ANY Fontana from the 60's is a must hear for me. Scraps, she seems to be really inhaling that ceegar big time!
I really really like Marte Röling covers for Fontana. Just awesome. If I were buying jazz albums in the 60s -- not likely; I was born in 1964 -- I would buy all of her covers just out of admiration. Of course, most of them were also musically good.
Oh, look: her picture on Discogs has her smoking a cigar! I don't know about you, but I think that's pretty great (especially in the sixties).http://www.discogs.com/artist/2022209-Marte-R%C3%B6ling
I agree with Scraps. Friends of mine have framed and hung her covers.Dogon, thanks much for this one as I have never seen it.
It's funny, sometimes an album cover can really infuence your purchasing decisions.These Marte Röling fontana's, when they came out, were an instant turnoff for me. Not because of the art, but because I couldn't fathom this 'NEW MUSIC'. I was a devotee of Riverside, Blue Note and Pacific Jazz etc., pretty mainstream, maybe a sometimes venturing a little out. I would walk down an aisle, see these covers and swiftly pass them lest I be contaminated! Now I have them all!
The Fontana Marte Röling Series [FMRS] has appeal because of its packaging and the music alike. Collect 'em all!
