Schumann-Saal, Düsseldorf December 1981 concert poster

Original first printing concert poster advertising The Great Guitars at the Schumann-Saal in Düsseldorf [Germany] on Friday, 4th December, 1981, presented by René Heinersdorff in cooperation with Wim Wigt Productions. For the tour, the trio was accompanied by bassist Joe Byrd and drummer Chuck Redd. The Great Guitars was a supergroup formed by jazz guitarists Charlie Byrd (1925–1999), Herb Ellis (1921–2010), and Barney Kessel (1923–2004) in 1973. The trio performed intermittently from 1973 and released several live albums: Great Guitars (1975), Great Guitars 2 (1976), Great Guitars at the Winery (1980), Great Guitars: Straight Tracks (1991), Return of the Great Guitars (1996), Great Guitars Concord Jazz (2005). After a stroke ended Kessel’s career in 1992, Ron Escheté, Mundell Lowe, Larry Coryell, and Tal Farlow variously joined Byrd and Ellis in later concerts.

The poster measures 59.2 x 83.8 cm (approx. 23.3″ by 33″ inches) and is printed in black ink on thin, coated paper stock. In excellent unfolded condition, clean and unmarked.
