    Louis Jordan & His Tympany Five Vintage Chicago Concert Poster. An original cardboard window card advertising the legendary Louis Jordan playing for 11 nights at McKie's jazz club in Chicago, IL from November 4-15. Bebop jazz saxophonist Sonny Stitt is previewed as coming to the club for Thanksgiving week. A very handsome poster with brown print on white board and a striking photo of the Blues, Grammy and Rock and Roll Hall-of-Fame member. Measures 17" x 26" and grades to Near Mint condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    More Information: This poster dates from either 1959 or 1964, and we were unable to make the final determination.

    Jordan performed with his Tympany Five throughout his illustrious career, but it was a bit of a misnomer because he usually had six or more band members and nobody played tympani/kettle drums.

    Condition details: Has some spots of creasing in the upper portion, along with bumped corners.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
