Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins – Ultra Rare 1954 New York Bebop Concert Poster
An extremely rare concert poster advertising the October, 1954 “Great Moderns In Jazz” concert at New York’s Town Hall. This featured some of the most important Jazz artists of all time–Charlie Parker, Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk, Art Farmer, and Horace Silver, with Jimmy Raney and Hall Overton. Charlie Parker concert posters are extremely rare, and this one has possibly the best lineup of Bebop players ever.
We obtained this poster from Norman Saks, the foremost Charlie Parker collector in the world. This exact poster is pictured in the book “Charlie Parker & Jazz Club Memorabilia: The Norman R. Saks Collection” by Ken Vail. The poster measures 8 1/2″ x 14″ and is printed on card stock. In overall fine condition, with a small chip to the top, two archivally closed (and near impossible to see) 1/2″ edge tears and a single 1/4″ edge tear, and creases to the bottom corner. It will frame beautifully. With Norman Saks’ signed letter of authenticity, and Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity. A spectacular rarity.
