A major graphic designer and illustrator, Paul Bacon was responsible for many famous LP covers for Riverside and Blue Note in the 1950s. A fan of classic jazz, Bacon occasionally sang and played comb a la Red McKenzie from the late 40s on purely for the fun of it. He was regularly featured on a number with Bob Greene's "World of Jelly Roll Morton" in 1974, and in the early 1990s performed at Cajun, a New York jazz club. Bacon recorded an enjoyable set for Jazzology in 1996.
