Ellison Greenstone, New York, [1946], Duke Ellington, Original Vintage Concert Program, SIGNED by Duke Ellington on the front wrap; undated but a program advertisement for "the recently published book ‘Duke Ellington’, written by Barry Ulanov and published by Creative Age Press" (first edition published in1946), the presence of vocalist, Marion Cox, in the orchestra, and a program photograph depicting Ellington at Carnegie Hall announcing the premier of his Deep South Suite (written in November, 1946,) almost certainly dates the program to that year. Very good, in original pictorial folio wraps, staple bound, 16 pp, 12" by 9", binding is tight, rubbing to wraps, small spot to rear wrap, pages are lightly creased and age toned, extensively illustrated with b&w photos. The signature in blue ink is about fine without loss or fading. A vintage jazz collectible, SIGNED Ellington concert programs from the 40's, in this condition, are increasingly uncommon. J1004
