Searching for Harvey
In the middle of the last century New Jersey's Savoy Records recorded some of the biggest names in jazz and gospel music. The distinctive covers of these albums were oil paintings signed by someone named Harvey. Who was he? His artwork had a cult following but his identity remained a mystery. Savoy Records would send him a title or concept, he would produce the painting and they paid him in cash. There was much speculation on a website created by John Glassburner that was dedicated to Harvey's work. It was through that website that the artist's identity was finally revealed.
