    Wes Montgomery "World's Greatest Guitarist" 1965 Chicago Concert Poster. An original cardboard window card advertising Wes Montgomery playing for 11 nights at McKie's jazz club in Chicago, IL from January 6-17, 1965. "World's Greatest Guitarist," the poster boasts, and it wasn't hyperbole: the annual Downbeat magazine critics' poll voted Wes "Best Jazz Guitarist" in 1960, '61, '62, '63, '66 and '67, and he probably would have won more except for his untimely death in 1968. This is the first Wes Montgomery concert poster that Heritage has ever offered. Measures 17" x 26" and grades to Near Mint Minus condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.

    More Information: Has a fold/creasing mark in the upper right and lower left corners, and a spot of soiling between the "A" and "G" in "Cottage."
