    A striking typographic cover for an album by jazz band leader Sammy Kaye (1910–1987), released in 1972 on Project 3 Total Sound. The swinging and swaying letters and words are from Calypso (Fonderie Olive, 1958) and Schmale Herold (Berthold, 1904).

    Sammy Kaye, the famous creator of “Swing and Sway” presents these brand new recordings. This new album opens with the song “If You’ve Got the Time”. Sammy asked Johnny Mack who performed the original TV commercial [for Miller Beer] to do an encore on this album. Johnny obliged and now you’ll hear his memorable song as originally played and sung on this great album.
