Miles Davis, Oscar Peterson, Stan Getz, Vintage Original Concert Poster, First Printing, Musikhalle, Hamburg [Germany], Tuesday, March 29, 1960, produced by Norman Granz, in cooperation with Kurt Collien. Huge A0 Format (approx. 47" by 33", 119.4 cm. by 83.8 cm. ) with the imprint of Gunther Kieser to top left of recto. Although Granz had terminated his annual North American concert tours in 1957, he continued to produce sporadic jazz tours to Europe and Asia until the early1980's. Billed as the JATP Jazz Winners, this tour featured three stellar jazz groups of the era, the Oscar Peterson Trio with Ray Brown, bass and Ed Thigpen, drums; the Stan Getz Quartet, featuring Lou Levy on piano, and the classic Miles Davis Quintet with Wynton Kelly, piano, Jimmy Cobb, drums , Paul Chambers, bass and John Coltrane, tenor saxophone. This was an extensive European tour, but the poster was designed by Gunther Kieser exclusively for the concert presentations in Germany, and is scarce, thus. Crisp factory folds, light rubbing to lower left horizontal and vertical folds, a tiny perforation to the bottom left vertical fold, touch of edge wear, else, about near fine, verso is clean and unmarked. Stored and shipped folded, flat. 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. A striking piece in jade and black with elegant graphics, a classic example of Kieser's jazz poster design. Very uncommon, particularly in the large scale format and in this condition. J1718
