BOSTON, SATURDAY, AUGUST 19, 1950

One of JAZZ LIVES’ attentive readers pointed me to this fascinating piece of paper.  I assume that the people who wrote down the details for the poster were doing it by telephone (hence the spelling errors) but “The Greatest Jazz Stars in the World” seems just about right.  The contemporary auction house that has this artifact up for bids has listed it in their “Rock & Roll/Music” category . . . no comment here.  Bidding will conclude on May 12, 2012 here.

May your happiness increase.

  1. I love vintage material like this. And yes, I’m sure this was one hot show in August 1950. Not sure where the Symphony Ballroom is/was, but Mass Ave is a very long street. Maybe Symphony Hall? Beautiful artifact of a wonderful day. Thanks for posting.
