Ultraswing – “Jouez” – Album Reverse

Ultraswing, the UK gypsy jazz band has just released their next album, “Jouez,” for which I did the album art work.  This was a great project to work on, especially for developing some fun characters, interesting vignettes and scenes.  They wanted to go with the idea of a speak-easy style jazz club featuring the full ensemble as well as all the characters that go along with that type of lounge.  As soon as I receive my copies in the mail, I will be sure to post some photos of the product as well.  There are interior panels and the disc itself, as well.  If you like jazz, and especially gypsy style jazz, in the vein of Django Reinhardt you should certainly check them out and give them a listen; plus, they are super cool cats.
