San Francisco: The Fillmore West, 1968. Two color lithograph handbill designed by legendary psychedelic poster artist Dore, advertising a performance by Ornette Coleman and his ensemble at the Fillmore West in the late summer of 1968. With a printed signature by Dore, dated 1968, at the bottom right margin.
A watershed period for Coleman, who only two years earlier had made the controversial decision to add his ten-year-old son Denardo to his band as the drummer on the then-criticized and now-classic album, "The Empty Foxhole." The young drummer's unrefined yet highly distinctive style drove Coleman's music into entirely new directions, and becoming Ornette's primary drummer, continued to evolve his father's art for the next three decades.
7 x 4.5 inches. Fine.
