David Stone Martin part 4

In the world of jazz there is one artist collected the world over who has never played an instrument not even a note of music but has left his mark on the jazz culture. Illustrator David Stone Martin (1913 – 1992) was one of the most prolific and influential graphic designers of the postwar era, with his signature hand-sketched graphics with two or three primary colours, perfectly capturing the energy and spontaneity of the jazz idiom.

This is part 4 of a 4-part post on the works of David Stone Martin. For biographical notes on Martin see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 - 3 also. I'm afraid I do not have dates for a number of the album covers in this particular post:
