    Monterey Jazz Festival Poster (1964) As the 50th anniversary of the Monterey Jazz Festival comes near (in 2007), let's take a look back to one wonderful year -- 1964 -- when the Blues reigned supreme. For that particular event, the "Mother of Jazz" would be honored with a night of "The Blues -- Right Now!", featuring Joe Williams, Big Joe Turner, "Big Mama" Willie Mae Thornton, and Homesick James. Jazz fans got their fair share of thrills too, thanks to stellar performances by Pee Wee Russell, Buck Clayton, Vic Dickenson, Bud Freeman, Red Callendar, Art Farmer, Horace Silver, Jon Hendricks, and the big bands of Woody Herman and Duke Ellington. This lovely vintage poster features art by Earl Newman, and measures 23" x 35". It's a great souvenir of that fantastic time. There is some light yellowing of the heavy paper, and a 1.5" tear is present on the lower left side, along with several smaller tears on the right side. A few minor marks can be be seen , along with tack holes in the corners. Still, this is an attractive, flat poster in Very Good condition that would frame very nicely. If Jazz -- or the Blues -- is your thing, then man, this righteous poster needs to hanging in your pad! It's the most, cat!
