New Victoria Theatre, London March 1960 concert flyer
Original first printing concert flyer advertising Norman Granz’ Jazz At The Philharmonic at the New Victoria Theatre in London [England] on Saturday, 19th March, 1960, presented by Harold Davison. The two shows at the New Victoria Hall were part of the third JATP British Tour during March 1960 and featured Ella Fitzgerald, Shelly Manne & His Men, the Jimmy Giuffre Trio, the Paul Smith Quartet, and trumpeter Roy Eldridge. Besides playing their own spot, it was the Paul Smith Quartet that were responsible for accompanying Ella Fitzgerald. Guitarist Jim Hall and double-bassist Wilfred Middlebrooks of the Paul Smith Quartet served a dual purpose on the tour as they also accompanied Jimmy Giuffre.
The flyer measures 14.5 x 22.8 cm and is beautifully printed in yellow and black inks on thin, matte-coated paper stock. Complete with the original postal booking form still intact. Folded twice with some writing on the rear, else in near excellent condition. Feel free to email us with any questions you may have concerning this item.
