Ramsey Lewis – The Groover album art

Nice one! I’ve adjusted the font ID. ITC Bookman wasn’t released before 1975. It’s distinguished from other Bookmans by a “true italic” with cursive forms (round e, monocular a). This is one of the older phototype versions of Bookman with slanted roman letterforms, probably PLINC’s Bookman Italic Swash, see this previous post. It doesn’t seem to match in all details, but keep in mind that there’s always the possibility of manual customization.
Very nice! Saw this cover yesterday on music nerd and Ad Age editor Brian Braiker's IG story. Great addition!
Everything about this typography is superb!
The Bookman “Th” ligature is my new spirit animal.
