Design for music and musicians

Forgive me but I love this design: it still feels fresh and radiates the uninhibited enthusiasm of this improvised music party.
Chris Burn, who commissioned this, was anxious that his name should not be set in Helvetica: this was when I became aware of the curse of Helvetica which afflicts people with names like Burn, Burns, Norburn, Fishburn etc. Try setting these names in Helvetica (U&lc) and you will see what I mean.
