PARKER, Charlie & DAVIS, Miles et al.
Festival International de Jazz, Salle Pleyel, Paris May 1949 concert program and flyer
Original vintage concert program for the Festival International de Jazz held at the Salle Pleyel in Paris [France] from 8th May – 15th May, 1949, featuring Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Sidney Bechet, and many more. The festival marked the first European appearances for both Charlie Parker and Miles Davis. Includes the scarce original pink flyer for Sunday, 15th May, 1949, the final day of the festival. I have handled a few of these programs in my time, but this is easily the best copy I have ever seen.
In original uncoated pictorial wrappers featuring striking artwork by Charles Delaunay, 24.8 x 31.5 cm, staple bound, 28 pp. All text in French. In excellent condition, bright, tightly bound and clean. Additional photos available on request.
