Album Covers Featuring Musicians In Costume

216 posts in this topic

"Costume" would be defined as clothes not typically worn by said musician while at work or in everyday life.  Thus, top hat and tails would not be a costume for Fred Astaire, but probably would be for most everybody else.  Overalls would not be a costume for Art Blakey since he really wore them (at least on that Keystone Korner album cover), but most certainly would be for Wynton Marsalis.

Here's a couple of examples with which to begin:

Does she count as a musician :)

And I suppose it's a moot point as to whether these are costumes or George Clinton's normal clothes

For the Firehouse Five +2 that was their normal stage apparel, so it wasn't really so much a costume for them, just their everyday work clothes.  A costume for them would have been a suit and tie!

Oh, I never actually saw them PERFORM. They never came to Tonyrefail Working Men's Club :g
