Just like Bluenote album covers, there's something fascinating about mid-'60s Verve covers.  I'm not even a big Cal Tjarder fan, but I've spent way too much time staring at this album cover.   It isn't fancy.  It isn't a high concept piece of art.  It's just a fun and clever idea which should appeal to anyone who liked Tjader's Latin jazz stylings, or at least enjoyed a good plate of Latin food.
