In 1955, Charles White provided an illustration for the cover of 2 Part Inventions in Jazz, a two-volume issue. The record was released on the Vanguard label as part of its Vanguard Jazz Showcase – AVRS-7011-X. Again, these were 10" recordings. The cover featured two drawings by White, one of a piano player (Ellis Larkins’ instrument) and the other of a trumpet player (Ruby Braff’s instrument). The drawings had each been used on other Vanguard record sleeves, but for 2 Part Inventions in Jazz had been montaged together. There were no references to White on the back of the sleeve.
