Count Basie and Tony Bennett Original [1969] British Concert Tour Program, presented by Harold Davison, SIGNED by Count Basie and Tony Bennett at their respective program photos. A reunion of old colleagues, this is an uncommon program for a joint UK tour in April 1969, which was limited to eight engagements. As early as the mid-50's, Bennett had developed a strong affinity for jazz, in fact he was the first male pop singer to perform with the Basie Orchestra, a collaboration which led to two fine recordings in 1958-9, In Person and Basie Swings, Bennett Sings. In pictorial wraps, 8.25" by 10", [16 pp], staple bound, program notes by Benny Green, b&w photos by David Redfern, shallow creasing to lower front corner, wraps are lightly rubbed, else very good+, tight, clean unmarked; signatures in black and blue ink are about fine, with no loss or fading. An uncommon vintage jazz collectible with a scarce signature pairing. J 1711
