... the place, man

This is the cover of the French edition of the Verve album Ella At Duke's Place, a much more satisfying and much less re-issued collection - to my mind - than the much more celebrated Ellington Songbook.

The cover to this French edition was commissioned specially from the artist Raymond Moretti. There is  particularly fascinating post about Moretti - which first alerted me to this edition of the album - at the always fascinating blog, London Jazz Collector. You can read about Moretti's work here.
