Ahmad Jamal Trio - The Awakening

This is Ahmad Jamal's The Awakening on Impulse Records. Impulse's first major signing was John Coltrane who's influence can be seen as the label grew. It became well known for its free-jazz releases and the orange/black motif of their album packaging.

As for the album cover, I'm not able to find information on the cover designer, who did a wonderful job. The design is colorful, graphic and modern, much like the music. I couldn't find a lot of info on the photographer either. But he did pop up a few times on Google. I recognize a few of Chuck Stewart's photos, specifically the ones below.

Also, if you want a 2006 calendar of Chuck Stewart's photos, Amazon.com has some. Nevermind. They're unavailable.
