Aerophonic Records, designed by Johnathan Crawford
Founded and run by Dave Rempis, a Chicago-based world-class saxophonist, Aerophonic produces not only notable records, but also some of the coolest album covers around. Designed by Johnathan Crawford, they’re highly collectible; each cover may feel different, but they all maintain a consistent aesthetic, featuring elegant and organic abstract shapes that almost seem to have a life of their own. An ideal complement for the free-flowing tunes presented by the label, performed by household names such as Frank Rosaly, Joshua Abrams, Avreeayl Ra and Dave Rempis himself.
