"Far Side" cartoonist Gary Larson has designed his first record album cover - for the latest Concord Jazz recording by guitarist Herb Ellis. The name of the album is "Doggin' Around" and Larson's cartoon pictures a pack of dogs having a good time at a jazz club called The Stuffed Cat. "In a way, the cover design was an opportunity for me to repay a debt," Larson says. "I've drawn so many `Far Side' cartoons while listening to Herb Ellis." Larson, a guitarist himself, is a big fan of Ellis and for compensation he took a guitar lesson from Ellis.
