The cover design of the album “Live in Bremen” by the Swedish jazz band Oddjob was inspired by musical improvisation. The graphic-oriented artwork functions as an expression of jazz improvisation, in allusion to the band’s logo. The letters of the band name resemble a sequence of notes, floating into each other and apart again. This creates a rhythmical picture with a three-dimensional effect. The gradients indicate the spatial sound of sophisticated concert recordings. The black-and-white contrast is complemented by subtle grey shading to foster visual unity.
