Nils Landgren’s Funk Unit’s Album Funk Is My Religion and a Borrowed Warhol image.

Readers may remember my latest artistic effort to recreate the four covers for a projected Billie Holiday album designed by Andy Warhol some toime in the 1950s. Well, Swedish trombonist and band leader Nils Landgren had obiously seen Warhol’ designs as he “borrowed” Warhol’s trombone player from one of the covers.

Here’s my version of the relevant Volume 3 cover:

Nils Landgrens’ latest album

Warhol’s trombone player with added colour.

There is no credit to designer of the Funk is My Religion cover but there is a note saying “inspired by Andy Warhol. I wonder how Landgren found this image. Still it’s fun that Warhol’s designs are still turning up on record covers.
