Stapled, orange blue and white wraps with deep blue titles. Some light edge, corner and surface wear along with light aging. Overall, this is an attractive copy in about VG+ condition. Though unpaginated, this copy has 24 pp. and is the official program for the 1959 Newport Jazz Festival Concert Tour. This tour featured George Shearing, Thelonius Monk, Lennie Tristano with Lee Konitz, Anita O'Day, Humphrey Lyttleton and Ronnie Ross. There is a one to two page, illustrated biography of each musician and several other features including an unintentionally funny glossary of jazz terminology from the period. Relatively scarce program with a real feel for jazz ca. 1960. I find no copies listed in WorldCat.; B&W Photographs; 4to 11" - 13" tall; Unpaginated pages
