    Description

    Billie Holiday Loew's Sheridan Concert Handbill (Village Voice & Jean Shepherd, 1957). Extremely Rare. Black and white, printed on paper, announcing a show on Sat. June 15: "A Mammoth Jazz / Festival...Billie Holiday / Sings / In / Greenwich Village". The handbill shows a classic half-length shot of "Lady Day" performing. The lineup also includes the Modern Jazz Quartet, Charlie Mingus Quintet, Randy Weston Trio and Barbara Lea. Measures 8.5" x 10". In Very Good condition, with a 1" tear and partial loss to upper right corner, slight loss to lower right corner, corners and edges rubbed, some surface marks. "NB" written on reverse.

    This is the first time that Heritage has offered an example of this handbill. Promotional material for Billie Holiday is very rare, and particularly hard to find, featuring an image of "Lady Day".
