Kongresshaus, Zürich November 1970 concert flyer
Original double-sided first printing concert flyer advertising The Oscar Peterson Trio at the Kongresshaus in Zürich [Switzerland] on Monday, 23rd November, 1970, presented by Migros. For the European tour bassist Sam Jones and drummer Bobby Durham were replaced by George “Jiri” Mraz and Ray Price, respectively. With this new group, Peterson had recorded the album Walking the Line. Recorded at MPS-Studios in Villingen, Germany and produced by Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer, the album captures Peterson in fiery form. His mastery of the ballad form is heard in his sensitive interpretation of “Once Upon a Summertime”, which also showcases Mraz’s gorgeous tone.
The flyer measures 148 x 105 mm and is beautifully printed in black ink on thin, uncoated green card stock. In excellent unfolded and unmarked condition. Feel free to email us with any questions you may have concerning this item. Additional images of the flyer available on request.
