Does anyone know about the existence of a black and white album cover of Walter Bishop Jr in front of his upright piano holding his pet cat "JJ" ? Details appreciated. Thanks.

As close a combination of those ingredients as I could find.

I believe his former wife still posts here, so I'm sure she will know the album and give you whatever info she can.

The rear CD cover of "What's New" DIW-605 shows WB cuddling a cat ( or at least a fluffy object) close to his face. No upright piano but the photo is in B&W.

Thanks Clunky, but in the photograph in question Bish is very clearly sitting in front of the piano and holding a very cool looking "JJ" - who stares straight at the camera.

Still looking for the other back and white cover with Bish in front of his upright piano, holding - and lookng straight into the camera - "JJ".

It's not an album cover, but it is the work of famous photographer, Julio Mitchel.

It's a good bet that JJ is roaming around Kitty-Cat Heaven....

J.J. has an interesting "pedigree". James Earl Jones's father, Robert Earl Jones, was a neighbor of Walter's. during a time Robert Earl had to go out of town, Walter "cat-sat" with J.J. when Robert Earl returned, Walter had fallen in love and Robert Earl let him keep J.J.
