Charlie Parker May 1957 UK Columbia/Clef promo poster

Scarce original first printing Columbia Records promo poster advertsing recordings from Norman Granz’ Clef series released during May 1957, including Charlie Parker’s Charlie Parker with Strings. Originally released in 1950 on Mercury Records, Charlie Parker with Strings is actually the name of two separate albums by Charlie Parker. The sessions place Parker in the context of a small classical string section and a jazz rhythm section, rather than his standard bebop quintet. They were Parker’s most popular sellers during his lifetime, and were admitted to the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1988.

The poster measures 25.4 x 63.4 cm and is printed in orange, purple, and black inks on thin, matte-coated paper stock. Folded thrice with light overall surface handling wear.
