    Yusef Lateef, Roland Kirk, Freddie Hubbard 1969 NYC Jazz Concert Poster. An original jazz-concert advertising window card for Slugs' Saloon in New York City spanning six weeks in June and July, 1969. Actually, the club had to drop the "Saloon" from its name due to liquor regulations, so they adopted "in the far east," referring to their out-of-the-way location in the East Village. Slugs' was considered a "musician's bar" and held only about 100 patrons.

    Jazz headliners advertised on this poster were the Yusef Lateef Quartet, the Roland Kirk Quartet, the Freddie Hubbard Quintet, the Chico Hamilton Sextet, the Roy Haynes Quintet and the Bobby Hutcherson-Harold Land Quintet. Shows ran until 4:00 AM.

    Don't let the "Reproduction Rights Reserved" line in the bottom left corner throw you off; this is an original, pre-shows concert poster made in the spring of 1969. That particular line does show up from time to time on posters from the Murray Poster Printing Co., probably on the advice of their lawyers.

    Made of cardboard, measures 14" x 22" and grades to Very Good condition for four dinged and creased corners, and the writing of "1969" in a circle on the red to the left of Yusef. It's very light and could even be in pencil, but we didn't try to remove it for fear it would damage the red. Very small surface crease through the "L" in "Harold" at the bottom. COA from Heritage Auctions.
