Album Cover of the Week: Cannonball Adderley, Cannonball’s Sharpshooters

It’s been quite some time since I last featured a Western-themed album cover, although this one is not as obvious. It’s Cannonball’s Sharpshooters, from the late, great jazz saxophonist Julian “Cannonball” Adderley.

Cannonball Adderley - Cannonball's Sharpshooters

This is the original cover for the record, released in 1958 on the EmArcy label (a subsidiary of Mercury Records). I can’t find any credit information for the graphic design but I can tell you that this is a typically fine release from Adderley, one of my favorite saxophonists.
