[Scandinavia]: N.p., ca. 1953-54. All in very good condition. / Very Good. Item #4800
A mysterious set of jazz records from 1953 and 1954 with remarkable fan-made covers, signed Amadeus-55. The records are Scandinavian releases of American jazz from the labels Karusell and Metronome, many of which are records that American jazz impresario Norman Granz first had a hand in releasing. The hand drawn artwork often straddles cubism and pop with a whimsical and lighthearted quality, sometimes with splashes of muted color. An extraordinary pre-zine example of music fandom inspired folk art.
