Grand Théatre, Reims February 1976 concert poster
Large original first printing concert poster advertising American jazz saxophonist Archie Shepp at the Grand Théatre in Reims [France] on Thursday, 5th February, 1976, presented by Musique Action Reims. For the tour Shepp was accompanied by bassist Cameron Brown and drummer Beaver Harris. In the late 1970s and beyond, Shepp’s career went between various old territories and various new ones. He continued to explore African music, while also recording blues, ballads, spirituals (on the 1977 album Goin’ Home with Horace Parlan) and tributes to more traditional jazz figures such as Charlie Parker and Sidney Bechet, while at other times dabbling in R&B, and recording with various European artists including Jasper van’t Hof, Tchangodei and Dresch Mihály.
The poster measures 76.8 x 116.5 cm (approx. 30.2″ by 45.8″ inches) and is beautifully printed in olive green ink on thin, smooth-finish paper stock. Tiny tack hole to each corner, else in excellent unfolded condition. Feel free to email us with any questions you may have concerning this item. Additional images of the poster available on request.
