Theatre 140, Brussels April 1965 concert flyer
Original first printing double-sided concert flyer advertising American jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery (1923–1968) at the Theatre 140 in Brussels [Belgium] on Sunday, 4th April, 1965, accompanied by the Pim Jacobs Trio (Pim Jacobs, piano; Ruud Jacobs, bass; Han Bennink, drums). Widely considered one of the major jazz guitarists, emerging after such seminal figures as Django Reinhardt and Charlie Christian, Montgomery was a major influence on countless other guitarist, including Jimi Hendrix, Pat Metheny, Lee Ritenour, Larry Coryell, Steve Howe and George Benson. Wes Montgomery died at his home in Indianapolis on the morning of 15th June, 1968 from a heart attack. Only 45 years old at the time of his death, Montgomery had just returned from a tour with his quintet and was at the height of his fame, having attained a degree of popular acceptance that few jazz artists in that era achieved. Montgomery’s home town of Indianapolis later named a park in his honor.
