Charlie Parker – Superb Signed Photograph, With Norman Saks Authentication
An extraordinary signed photograph of Jazz giant Charlie Parker, by celebrity photographer James J. Kreigsmann (official photographer for Harlem’s legendary Cotton Club.) Parker signed this 7 3/4″ x 9 4/8″ publicity photo “To Kayo, Regards, Charlie Parker” in black fountain pen, and the signature is rates a perfect “10”, with no issues whatsoever. The photograph is in excellent condition, with some minor creasing and a bit of toning, below and to the right of Parker’s index finger.
We obtained this photograph from Norman Saks, the foremost Charlie Parker collector in the world. It is pictured on page 31 in the book “Charlie Parker & Jazz Club Memorabilia: The Norman R. Saks Collection” by Ken Vale. Included is Norman Saks’ signed letter of authenticity, and Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity. By far the nicest signed Charlie Parker item we’ve seen.
