Morgan, Lee (1938 – 1972)

A very rare vintage German-English language program for Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers European Tour of December 1960, 12 pages, 7.75″ x 8.25″, signed to a full-page illustration by trumpeter Lee Morgan and Art Blakey.

Bold signatures of each in ballpoint pen. Blakey has signed twice more in the program, as has pianist Bobby Timmons (1935 – 1974). Morgan’s signature is rare in any format, but this is only the second signed image we have encountered in the past thirty years. In very fine condition.
