Grosse Freiheit, Hamburg February 1995 concert poster
Original first printing concert poster advertising Buckshot LeFonque at the Grosse Freiheit in Hamburg [Germany] on Wednesday, 15th February, 1995, with Japanese musician, DJ, record producer Mondo Grosso as special guest. Buckshot LeFonque was a musical group project of Branford Marsalis. The name Buckshot LeFonque was a pseudonym used by jazz saxophonist Julian “Cannonball” Adderley for contractual reasons on the album Here Comes Louis Smith (1958). After playing with Sting, Miles Davis and other artists, Marsalis founded this band to create a new sound by merging classic jazz with rock, pop, R&B and hip-hop influences. Two albums were released, Buckshot LeFonque (1994) (which featured mostly DJ Premier produced tracks) and the follow-up Music Evolution (1997) (which featured mostly Frank McComb on the vocals).
The poster measures 59.3 x 84.0 cm (approx. 23.3″ by 33.1″ inches) and is beautifully printed on thin, matte-coated paper stock. There is a tiny pin hole to each corner, else in excellent unfolded and unmarked condition. Feel free to email us with any questions you may have regarding this item.
