The Picasso of Jazz

Thanks to Clayton Walter for a nice little Flora gallery at his Claytonology blog:
"I think of Flora as the Picasso of Jazz; his other-worldly depictions of Jazz musicians capture perfectly the vibe of a certain era of the music—brash, swingin' and full of ecstatic movement. There's another side to Flora as well. If you look closely at his LP illustrations, beyond the exciting flash,  you see a cunning method to his cartoonish madness."

I got so excited the other day when I found a new-to-me Flora cover. Battle of New Orleans, I think it was. Super cool.
