Koseinenkin Hall, Tokyo May 1964 concert flyer
Original first printing concert flyer advertising the Dave Brubeck Quartet’s three performances at the Koseinenkin Hall in Tokyo [Japan] from 5th to 7th May, 1964, in support of Times Changes, a studio album, produced by Teo Macero, based upon the use of time signatures that were, because of Brubeck’s previous work, a mainstay in popular jazz music. After returning from Japan, the Quartet went straight into the CBS 30th Street Studio in New York, again with produced Teo Mecero, to record Jazz Impressions of Japan — according to Brubeck a sort of trip diary of their recent Japanase tour. The album was also, in a sense, Brubeck fulfilling a dictum from his teacher, the French composer Darius Milhaud, who exhorted him to “travel the world and keep your ears open.”
The flyer measures 18.3 x 25.9 cm and is beautifully printed in orange and black inks on thin, matte-coated paper stock. Folded twice horizontally, else in near excellent condition.
