"A bricklike compilation of groundbreaking design and photography."— The New York Times Book Review, New York, USA
Jazz Covers kann beim erwachsenen Leser bzw. Betrachter jenen Aha-Effekt hervorbringen, der vielleicht zuletzt im Kindheitsalter Gefühle und Phantasien bei ihm auslöste, als man sein erstes Mal- oder Märchenbuch erhielt. Unter Jazzmusiksammlern kann das Werk indes genauso gut Sehnsüchte wecken, dann nämlich, wenn sie ihre Sammlung durchgehen und feststellen, welche Originale ihnen noch fehlen.“www.geowis.de, Dortmund, Deutschland
"A páginas tantas. Jazz Covers tem una nova ediçao lembrándo-nos que as pontes establecidos do jazz nao sao apenas musicales. O rico legado gráfico do jazz há muito que é fonte de inspiraçao para outros géneros. TASCHEN invertendo alias o que é tendência nessa casa editorial de gran sucesso de um já de si imponente primeira ediçao, passo se agora a um upgrade que a presentea en dois volúmenes de capa dura."— Jazz.pt, Coimbra, Portugal
"Jazz Covers de Joaquim Paulo y Julius Wiedemann, publicado por TASCHEN en tamaño LP en un estuche con dos volúmenes, recoge una colección de portadas de jazz publicadas entre 1940 y 1990. Al placer que supone la visión de esas creaciones artísticas se unen las interesantes -aunque breves- anotaciones tanto sobre los responsables de la parte visual como de la musical... El propio Stollman, algunos de los músicos que grabaron allí, así como otros artistas y personajes relacionados con el jazz dan su punto de vista y cuestan la historia de su relación con uno de los pocos sellos que utilizaba el esperanto en sus textos."— Mas Jazz Revista, Madrid, Spanien
"A stunning music and art book with all the great design features one expects from TASCHEN, this two-volume set (the size of an LP) features a broad selection of jazz record covers from the 1940s through early 1990s... each cover is beautifully reproduced and accompanied by a fact sheet listing performer and album name, art director, photographer, illustrator, year, label and more. Jazz fans will be particularly impressed by interviews with legendary jazz personalities such as Rudy Van Gelder... at 560 pages, Jazz Covers is the quintessential coffee table book, and the perfect conversation piece for relaxing with a friend over cocktails and listening to Ella Fitzgerald or Lady Day."— Boston Spirit, Boston, USA
"Eine wunderschöne, aufwändig gestaltete Sammlung ..."— Maxim, München, Deutschland
"TASCHEN have put together this new edition of Jazz Covers , a sizeable volume of exceptional Jazz LP covers dating back to the 40s. The kind of vinyl you buy purely for the cover, this brings together hundreds of designs across two books, with an emphasis on the colourful midcentury atomic style graphics that covered everything from food packaging to cushion covers. Helpfully, each record is accompanied by its illustrator’s name, photographer, label etc, so plenty of hard info to geek out on. Even if jazzing out in a leather recliner and cashmere sweater isn’t your thing, this is an incredible overview of design through the decades."— Selectism.com, Berlin, Deutschland
"But TASCHEN’s new coffee table book, Jazz Covers II, is a an even better advertisement of why album artwork shouldn't be stuck in a cupboard... and enjoy these beauties from the TASCHEN book, which would also make a spectacular present for the design-appreciating muso in your life. And, yes, sacrilege, but if you don't have any record sleeves as beautiful as these, you could always slice them out of the book with a Stanley knife and frame them..."www.yourhomeislovely.com, Großbritannien
"... But a new 2 volume set of album cover art has raised the bar much higher. It’s called Jazz Covers: From the 1940s to the 1990s. TASCHEN, the high-end art publisher, has a reputation for first class photo and art books, all with state-of-the-art production values and superb quality overall. The German-based company, which has retail outlets here in America, has just come out with an absolutely stupendous 2-volume set of album cover art for jazz lp’s spanning 50 years... Most if not all of this art was hand made by major graphic artists like Reid Miles of Blue Note, Bob Ciano of CTI, Margo Guryan of Impulse. Photographers include greats like William Claxton and Herman Leonard. The 2 large tomes also feature many more obscure albums by European jazz artists released only in Europe, such as pianist George Arvanitas, Rodolfo Alchurron, Gustav Brom, Polish jazz pianist and film composer Krzysztof Komeda, among others. Volume one features rare gems like the rarely-seen original Fontana Records cover of Miles Davis’ 1957 soundtrack for Louis Malle’s first film, l’Ascenseur pour l’Échafaud (Lift to the Scaffold)... In fact, many of these classic jazz albums have been out of print or never reissued, so you may see albums you’ve never seen or even heard of. There were many I’d never seen, and I’ve been following jazz for a long time, both here and in Europe, where I once lived... The cover art in these two very hefty volumes —they’ll almost break your arm off with their weight— is as timeless, stylish, and hip as the music it celebrates. What makes it even better is that it has album picks by contemporary musicians and producers like King Britt, Gilles Peterson, and Rainer Truby, as well as interviews with jazz historians like Michael Cuscuna, legendary engineer Rudy Van Gelder, Creed Taylor, and journalist Ashley Kahn."— KCRW.com, Los Angeles, USA
"A hugely enjoyable set of books for me on two levels; as a jazz music fan and a designer, so they easily earn my hearty recommendation. I’ll certainly continue to dip into them when looking for something new to listen to and to inspire new work. In fact, if you’re running a little short on creative inspiration lately, I suggest you pick up a copy, take some time out to indulge in the amazing array of cover art (just take a look at some of the examples below) while your favorite jazz record plays in the background, and if your creative juices don’t start flowing, you might want to check your pulse."— Wingsart Blog, London, Großbritannien
