The Wu-Note Project


First of all, let me say that I have mad love for Reid Miles, Blue Note's graphic designer that was able to take Francis Wolff's photographs and Alfred Lion's musical vision and turn them into beautiful pieces of design. Since Miles, I don't think anyone has been as able to turn out album covers that are quite so evocative of the music inside the sleeve. His design looked like the music sounded, period. And because he was so good, people have been ripping him off since day one. I don't know how Mr. Miles would feel about it, but I always like to see what people come up with. Enter the latest in a long line of imitators, the Wu-Note Project, a reimagining of the Wu Tang Clan's recordings as Blue Note covers. Nice. Full photoset here.
