All weekend long in the Pacific Jazz Café, we are proud to exhibit The Color of Jazz, showing the album covers and photographs of Pete Turner, the trailblazing pioneer of color photography. Working with producer Creed Taylor in the 1960s, Pete’s photographs were adapted on the high-gloss gatefold record sleeve designs for the CTI jazz label, which created a revolution in how music was seen and heard, ultimately shaping how advertising and packaging would look for the next 25 years. Full of vibrant color and surreal imagery, The Color of Jazz will exhibit some of Pete’s most iconic creations for CTI, along with the records themselves. More about Pete Turner and the Color of Jazz.
