Lot 599: Original program from the 1949 International Jazz Festival in Paris from May 8 to 15, 9.75 x 12.5, signed on the front cover in ink by Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Sidney Bechet, 'Hot Lips' Page, Tadd Dameron, Kenny Clarke, Kenny Dorham, Don Byas, Bill Coleman, Jimmy McPartland, James Moody, George Johnson, and a few French musicians. Includes an unsigned schedule pamphlet for the festival bearing ink notations. In very good condition, with moderate foxing and soiling to cover borders (most signatures unaffected), a small tear to the right edge, and slight brushes to a few signatures, including Parker's. Consignor notes that the autographs were originally collected by blind drummer Carlo Krahmer at the festival, who then gave them to his friend. An incredible relic from a vibrant period in the history of jazz. RR Auction's Fine Autographs and Artifacts Auction 467 Wednesday, 13th January 2016 Estimate: $4000-5000
