Melis Magic - Jose Melis

Melis Magic
Jose Melis
His Trio and Strings
SESAC Recordings
N 1705

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art, which happens to be an unusual in that the top 1/3 of the cover, the 2-color portion that features Melis, was printed and glued to the jacket (as a wrap around to the back cover). The jacket on which the metallic gold ink was printed is a "canvas" textured paper stock.

From the back cover: Jose Mellis (typo) is not merely a piano player but a multitalented artist. The millions who have enjoyed his keyboard exploits and ad lib comedy hits on NBC-TV's "The Jack Parr Show" may not realize that he is also a competent conductor, composer, arranger – a Jose of all musical trades.
