CHARLIE PARKER, SARAH VAUGHAN (1947)
[Chicago, 1947] Vintage original 11 x 8 1/2″ (28 x 22 cm.) black-and-white print still photo, FINE.
A remarkable and literally unique vintage candid photo of two great jazz icons, accompanied by a letter of provenance from jazz scholar Bill Reed, which states:
“While touring in a 1947 Jazz at the Philharmonic revue, the two great artists photographed here are seen casually browsing in a Chicago record store. The photo was given to me by the late jazz singer Francine Griffin who I was interviewing for a web site, Songbirds. It was taken by her deceased husband (name unknown to me) who was an amateur photographer.”
Vaughan appears to be autographing one of her records.
