    Lurlean Hunter 1957 Chicago "Breakfast Dance" Jumbo Concert Poster. An original jumbo cardboard window card for contralto jazz singer Lurlean Hunter appearing at Chicago's Masonic Temple at a "Breakfast Dance" benefit on Saturday night, July 20, 1957. Tickets were only $1.50 in advance and $2.00 at the door, were considered a donation, and breakfast was served between 3 & 6 AM.

    Hunter had previously performed with George Shearing and Red Saunders in the jazz world, and had played at Birdland in New York City and a number of prestigious Chicago clubs. She was born in Clarksdale, Mississippi but then moved to Chicago as an infant.

    Measures 22" x 28" and grades to Near Mint Minus condition. Would be straight Mint except for a couple of dinged and slightly creased two upper corners. Printer's flaw created a black smudge above "Masonic" at the very bottom, not considered damage. It should also be noted that the printer's bug at the very bottom "bled" off the poster in printing, this is not a trimmed poster in the least. COA from Heritage Auctions.
