Not Just Another Poster

This latest edition to the Posters and Programmes is a reminder of what was possibly the greatest ever Jazz Festival held in the North-east if not the UK.
The 1978 Cleveland Jazz Festival at Middlesbrough's then football ground Ayresome Park.
Just look at the names!
And I was there.
The festival was promoted by George Wein and Andy Hudson.
The poster is from the archives of the late Chris Yates.

Did see Ella and Oscar at City Hall in Newcastle, but not sure when-but wont sleep thinking of what I missed.

All the best jazz musicians in the world in Middlesborough! There was even a Pernod promotion...
