Police procedural novelist Michael Connelly is a connoisseur of jazz music so it’s no surprise that his most famous character, LAPD detective Hieronymus ‘Harry’ Bosch, is also a deep enthusiast of the genre. (Connelly has a page on his personal Web site all about the “music in the novels.”) Illustrator Russell Walks took those cues and his own penchant for Los Angeles noir and mid-century design to create a terrific series of imaginary Michael Connelly albums released by Blue Note Records.


“Most of these pieces were influenced or inspired by the work of Reid Miles, the designer who created somewhere around 500 covers for Blue Note Records in the mid-twentieth century,” Russell writes. “I’m not breaking new ground here; Miles’ work has been the launching point for a thousand other designers and artists. Still, there’s something about the way these mid-century colors & typefaces just seem to fit Harry’s L.A., a place where shadows and sadness are as common as sunshine.”
