Cannonball Adderley Original Vintage Concert Poster, First Printing, Koln, [Germany], Sunday April 16, 1961, presented in cooperation with Norman Granz, designed by Gunther Kieser. A1 Format, (approx. 33" by 23"/ 84 cm. by 59.7 cm), imprint of Michel and Kieser to lower right edge, light printer's offset to verso, hint of rubbing to top right edge, else about fine, crisp and unmarked, stored flat and shipped in mailing tube. Kieser's bright and exuberant poster was designed exclusively for the Quintet's German concert appearances, as part of Cannon's extensive 1961 European Tour, and is uncommon, thus. The band, riding high on its recent popular Riverside recordings, featured brother Nat on cornet, Sam Jones on bass, Victor Feldman on piano and vibes, Louis Hayes on drums and making his first trip to Europe, a young Ron Carter, who Cannon had apparently brought along to play bass when Jones was featured on cello. Gunther Kieser (1930) is one of Germany's preeminent poster artists whose work can be found in the collections of major museums including, the Tokyo Museum, the Louvre and the Museum of Modern Art. He has had a prolific and varied career, during which his technically innovative, provocative and brilliant designs have kept him in the fore front of European poster art. Kieser is perhaps best known for his jazz and rock concert posters, and particularly for the design work he did for the German concert producers Lippman & Rau from the 1950-80s. Uncommon vintage poster in collector's condition. J1699
