Jazz

Can anyone identify the main typeface used on the sleeve for 'Charisma' by Lee Morgan released on Blue Note in 1969 (i think), any help would be much appreciated!

60s Jazzy Typefaces

I am working on a project that requires some 1950s/60s typefaces (or something that looks very similar). The project relates to jazz music of the era so any retro and/or jazzy typeface recommendations are welcome.

I have this image with some type I'd like to imitate. Especially the "Sound Magic" in the third row. Can anyone id any of these faces?

Thanks.

What's the typeface used for Sonny Rollin's name?

THANK YOU!

The Spargo family of six typefaces has just released on Myfonts.com and on Fontspring.

Spargo is inspired by 20s and 30s American typefaces, often seen on share certificates and other securities. We thought it was time to bring a touch of transatlantic boom and ebullience to our portfolio of typefaces, not to mention a healthy dose of Roaring 20s spirit. Spargo is the result, offered in six all capitals display typefaces.

Here are speciments of the six faces...

Greater Albion has just launched Flapper, a family of four faces on Fontspring and Myfonts.com.

Flapper is family which embodies a great deal of fun and more than a little spirit of the roaring 20s. If ever a set of typefaces could dance a high kicking Charleston, these are they. Flapper is offered in regular, condensed, oblique and outline forms, and they all bring a great deal of fun and life wherever they are used. The Flapper family (yes, think of one of those dancing 20s girls with a long string of pearls...) is ideal for casual heading, bold captions, poster work and anywhere else a sense of fun is required.

Mynaruse Royale is an expansion of Mynaruse Titling. It features script capitals and widely tracked and smaller titling capitals. Mynaruse Royale has plenty of character and, with its powerful and sharp serifs that draw the eye. Mynaruse Royale is useful in settings that call for titling with an extra touch of elegance, such as a storefront, wedding program or formal invitation.
Mynaruse Royale contains a number of OpenType alternates, including alternate forms for the capitals that are large, drop cap like capitals instead of the calligraphic script capitals found in the default forms. Additionally there are non widely tracked lowercase forms that work well with the included alternate characters and ligatures.

''Whimsical Musical'' is a vivid hand drawn font with 405 alternate letters, all caps. Developed from a lighthearted drawing in my sketchbook saying the German word MUSIK cheerfully over and over in twenty vivid variations. Next to it was the date "6th April 2007." This initial idea has burst into a font that is full of surprises and whimsical turns. It is dynamically suggestive, like music, and humorously chaotic, as in Dada.

Ciseaux Matisse is a font family with 4 styles inspired by Henri Matisse's Drawing with scissors.

The Cut-Out style is a paper-cutout, boxed is the paper background. Both Linear and Boxed Linear have no bezier handles so they are more aggressive.

As drawing with scissors implies, all characters are cut by hand. With only uppercase letters, this font is designed for editorial use.
