Modern Jazz Quartet Original Vintage Concert Poster, First Printing, Staathalle, Kassel [Germany], Monday Dec. 14, 1959, produced 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 the top right margin, rubbing to center horizontal fold, neat corner pin holes, short closed edge tears to vertical center fold and to left center horizontal fold, shallow edge creasing, else very good++, clean, bright. Hugely popular with European audiences, the MJQ had made several extensive tours of Europe by 1959 and were riding high on the success of their seminal Atlantic recordings. Kieser's lyrical abstract design is one of several original posters he created specifically for the MJQ's German concert appearances over the years, and is scarce, thus. 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. J1702
