Kurzaal, Scheveningen & Concertgebouw, Amsterdam March 1960 concert program

Original vintage concert program for Count Basie and His Orchestra’s two performances at the Kurzaal in Scheveningen and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam on 26th March, 1960, presented by Lou van Rees. By the start of the 1960s, Basie was hugely popular in Europe and two concerts on the same day weren’t unusual. Fronted by singer Joe Williams, this was around the time of the release of Just the Blues, and the orchestra for the Spring 1960 European tour consisted of Joe Newman, Snooky Young, Thad Jones, George Cohn (trumpets); Benny Powell, Al Grey, Henry Coker (trombones); Fran Wess, Marshall Royal, Billy Mitchell, Frank Foster, Charlie Fowlkes (saxophones); Freddie Green (guitar); Eddie Jones (bass); and Sonny Payne (drums). A couple of concerts from this European tour (Paris and Milan) were recorded and eventually released.

One sheet folded into four pages, 18.0 x 25.8 cm. All text in Dutch. Very light age toning to extremities, else in excellent unfolded and unmarked condition. Additional photos available on request.
