Medeski, Martin & Wood - Let's Go Everywhere

I knew nothing about this new MMW album before picking it up. All I saw was a psychadelic, colorful drawing with giant, wavy eared rabbits. I expected an adventurous, fuzzed-out, lengthy soul-jazz epic. Turned out to be an album they made for children. It's not bad. Just wasn't what I was expecting.

Either way, I'm in love with the album art. The illustration was done by Jim Stoten (art direction by Graphic Therapy) who seems to have done a few other album covers. I've never seen his work before but his portfolio is filled with exactly the style of art that I love. My favorite part of the cover (besides the rabbits) are the caricatures of MMW in the balloon. Billy Martin looks like a sasquatch.
