Nagoya Civic Hall, Nagoya January 1975 concert poster
Original first printing concert poster advertising American jazz musician, trumpeter, bandleader, and composer Miles Davis (1926–1991) at the Nagoya Civic Hall in Nagoya [Japan] on Friday, 24th January, 1975. The concert in Nagoya was part of Miles’ Japanese tour during January and February 1975 in support of Get Up with It — a compilation album of songs Miles had recorded in sessions between 1970 and 1974, including those for the studio albums Jack Johnson (1971) and On the Corner (1972). Produced by Teo Macero, the album was released 22nd November, 1974 on Columbia Records. For the Japanese tour Miles was accompanied by Sonny Fortune (ss, as, fl); Pete Cosey (g, perc); Reggie Lucas (g); Michael Henderson (el-b); Al Foster (d); James Mtume Forman (cga, perc) — a line up that would be responsible for recording the Agharta album. The poster features a striking photo credited to Akiyoshi Miyashita. Never seen another one of these.
The poster measures 51.3 x 72.7 cm (approx. 20.2″ by 28.6″ inches) and is beautifully printed on thin, coated paper stock. There are a couple of small closed tears to the lower left and right side borders, else in remarkably near excellent unfolded condition.
