    Count Basie 1963 Wichita, Kansas Concert Poster. An original cardboard window card advertising "America's Incomparable Rhythmic Stylist," bandleader Count Basie, performing at the Cotillion Club in Wichita, KS. More dramatic words abound on this board: "...and His Internationally Famous Orchestra," and "the Most Explosive Force in Jazz." That's three huge plugs on one poster! But Basie deserved it. To help sell tickets, the poster also says "Tickets in Rm. 321 / 223" in grease pen. Measures 14" x 22 ¼" and grades to Very Good Plus condition with a 1/2" spot of loss in the bottom right corner, bumped corners, a scrape through the center portion of club's logo in the upper left portion, and a smear on the handwritten portion between the white and yellow. COA from Heritage Auctions.
