MPS Jazz Concert '69, Germany, 1969
This promotional poster was from a tour of the MPS record company. They wanted to promote the groups they had on their label. I accompanied Mark Murphy with a trio featuring Jimmy Woode and Kenny Clare. Milt Buckner also featured on the tour, was a really nice cat. He could really play. In fact, he invented locked-hands style playing, or block chord playing. George Shearing picked it up from him. Our tour was really a nice tour of Germany; we hit 21 cities of one-nighters.
