Fairfield Hall, Croydon November 1986 concert poster
Original first printing concert poster advertising American jazz tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins at the Fairfield Hall, in Corydon [England] on Sunday, 2nd November, 1986, accompanied by trombonist Clifton Anderson, pianist Mark Soskin, electric bassist Jerome Harris, and drummer Tommy Campbell. The concert, the only one in Britain on that tour, was broadcast by the BBC. Widely recognized as one of the most important and influential jazz musicians, Sonny Rollins, has recorded at least sixty albums as leader and a number of his compositions, including “St. Thomas”, “Oleo”, “Doxy”, “Pent-Up House”, and “Airegin”, have become jazz standards. Rollins has been called “the greatest living improviser”.
The poster measures 50.7 x 76.0 cm (approx. 20″ by 30″ inches) and is beautifully printed on medium-thin, uncoated paper stock. In near excellent unfolded and unmarked condition. Additional photos available on request.
