Festhalle, Hamburg May 1958 concert poster (Michel+Kieser)

Original vintage first printing concert poster advertising Norman Granz’s Jazz At The Philharmonic at the Festhalle in Hamburg [Germany] on Saturday, 31st May, 1958, presented by Kurt Collien. The concert in Hamburg was part of the seventh European JATP tour and featured Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Eldridge, Stan Getz, Coleman Hawkins, Sonny Stitt, Lou Levy, Pete Johnson, Herb Ellis, Ray Brown, Max Bennett, Gus Johnson, and Joe Turner. Though part of the JATP entourage, Ella Fitzgerald and Oscar Peterson were noticeable absent. The reason was they were touring Germany in their own names at the same time, Fitzgerald accompanied by The Lou Levy Trio, while Peterson’s trio featured Ray Brown and Herb Ellis. The poster features spectacular uncredited artwork by graphic duo Hans Michel and Günther Kieser.

The poster measures 83.9 x 59.4 cm (approx. 33″ by 23.4″ inches) and is beautifully printed in red and black inks on thin, smooth-finish uncoated paper stock. There is a tack hole to each corner and slight paper loss to the bottom right corner, else in near excellent unfolded condition.
