Book Description

June 4 2013
At the age of 21, Gene Deitch discovered The Record Changer, a jazz fan magazine. Every jazz swinger in the '40s was called a "cat," so Gene Deitch created a cartoon feature titled "The Cat," which quickly became a fixture of the magazine. He also started drawing the covers, which graced almost every issue from 1945 to 1951. Deitch's stylistically virtuoso images exquisitely embodied the essence of the 1950s hipster, and was a visual paean to the joy of collecting records and appreciating jazz. The Cat on a Hot Thin Groove collects all of Deitch's Record Changer work in one gorgeous, coffee-table art book, with commentary and reminiscences by Deitch himself.

Gene Deitch's artwork is superb on every level, alive, crazy and musical in his line, his shapes, his characters and colors: it's amusing to see how Deitch and the RECORD CHANGER folks seemingly disdained bebop in the late 1940s, considering how modern memory ties artwork like Deitch's to modernists like Dizzy, Bird and Miles...but it's a joy to read, discover and dig.
