Signed postcard photograph of Miles taken at Salle Pleyel, Paris, 1969.Paris: Editions Admira, 1989 Stock Code: 123134
Signed by Miles on his last European tourFine example of the great trumpeter's signature, signed "Miles" boldly across the image in thick-nibbed marker pen, the looping flourishes of the signature framing his torso and face. This is a superb image of Miles - captured at Salle Pleyel by the Magnum photographer Guy de Querrec - lit from below, trumpet poised on lips, watching from the wings with a brooding intensity.
The recipient has pencilled on the verso "Signée le 16.07.91 (Festival du Jazz) Aéroport de Nice. Très difficile à obtenir". Miles died on 28 September 1991 and this card dates to his final European tour, when he appeared at Montreux and at the Festival du Jazz in Nice.
