Charlie Parker – 1950 Pittsburgh Concert Handbill, with George Shearing & Slam Stewart

A rare and wonderfully evocative handbill advertising a May, 1950 all-star jazz concert at Pittsburgh’s Syria Mosque, with Charlie Parker and His Orchestra, George Shearing and his Quintet, and Slam Stewart and his All-Stars.

The evocative copy is wonderful:

‘Hurry – Get Your Tickets Now! For one of the GREATEST JAZZ CONCERTS to hit Pittsburgh in a decade’.  And that was probably not hype.  It continues, ‘HEAR! The Miracle of the Piano: GEORGE SHEARING & his Quintet PLUS The Phenomenal King of the Alto Sax: CHARLIE PARKER & his Orchestra,’ going on to plug Slam Stewart and ‘Surprise LOCAL TALENT!’

In excellent condition, with a small chip to the top right edge.  6″ x 9″

With Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
