Teatro Sistina, Rome October 1969 concert poster 

Original first printing concert poster advertising the Miles Davis Quintet at the Teatro Sistina in Rome [Italy] on Monday, 27th October, 1969. The concert in Rome was the second stop on the Quintet’s Oct/Nov European tour, having performed two concerts at the Teatro Lirico in Milan the day before. Presented by Franco Fontana, this was a great opportunity for the Rome jazz audience to catch Miles’ Third Great Quintet, the so-called “Lost” Band of 1968-1970 with Miles Davis, tenor and soprano saxophonist Wayne Shorter, pianist Chick Corea, bassist Dave Holland, and drummer Jack DeJohnette at their peak. The concert was broadcast by Italian TV and a 28 minutes recording exists. After the Milan and Rome shows, the quintet went on to visit Vienna (31st Oct), London (1st & 2nd Nov), Paris (3rd Nov), Copenhagen (4th Nov), Stockholm (5th Nov), Berlin (7th Nov), Liege (8th Nov), and finally Rotterdam (9th Nov). Although most of the performances from this tour were recorded, the short-lived quintet was never recorded in the studio.

The poster measures 34.7 x 99.3 cm (approx. 13.7″ by 39.1″ inches) and is beautifully printed on thin, light coated paper stock (coated on front only). The poster has been folded with a tiny rip to the upper left side border, else in remarkably near excellent condition. Additional photos available on request.
