From what I've heard and read, that cover captures Sebesky's general demeanor rather well .

Ha ha! From all those CTI albums, he seemed like he would be a guy in an Italian giallo film, sipping sherry in an Eames recliner and listening to music on a reel-to-reel.

I changed the title to "Ideas and/or Money," as some of these look like cheap photos taken by someone's mom or girlfriend.

HOLY #$%@!  He really does look like the killer in a 70s Italian giallo!  Was that the original cover?

Not the original cover. But Doctor Jazz wasn't all that long-lived, soon became a part of sony...Portrait, I think, and that was the cover they gave it then.

His arrangements on Paul Desmond's 'Summertime' (from the very early days when CTI was just a sub-brand of A&M) are so good. But that album sounds more luxurious than later CTI efforts; more French Riviera/"The Persuaders" TV series than giallo.

The A&M era of CTI in general had a lighter, more pop sound.  There are more tracks per album.  The Fantasy era tends to include a lot of long tracks with delirious grooves.
