SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT (12” LPs)

The third 12” LP release of the Birth of the Cool sessions brought the marketing of these sessions full circle. The initial 10” LP releases had been marketed by Capitol as part of their “Classics in Jazz” series. The new marketing package released this music as part of their “Capitol Jazz Classics” series of LPs. The album cover design used a black & white sketch of the album artist with different background colors. The Miles Davis cover used a blue background.
Down Beat devoted a short column notice in their section covering reissues in the jazz field.
The liner notes quoted much of the same material presented in Part Four from Down Beat articles.
