Teatro di via Manzoni, Milan November 1956 concert program
Exceedingly scarce original vintage concert program for the Birdland ’56 concert staged at the Teatro di via Manzoni in Milan [Italy] on 22nd November, 1956, presented by La Federazione Italiana del Jazz. The concert featured an all-star ensemble of Miles Davis, Lester Young, Bud Powell, the Modern Jazz Quartet, René Urtreger, Pierre Michelot, and Christian Garros. Never seen another one of these.
