About Polish JazzPolish Jazz is approaching its 100th anniversary. What makes the history of Polish Jazz so unique is its role in the quest for democracy and political freedom during the communist period and its being deeply rooted in Polish traditional culture. In the 20th century, jazz was in the avant-garde of democratic processes in Poland and was strongly linked with all genres of art that struggled for artistic independence. The difficult circumstances of the communist period and the need to redefine its position after the political transformation left no space for stagnation. (From  culture.pl, A Foreigner's Guide to Polish Jazz.)

Designed by the prolific movie and music poster artist Leszek Drzewinski, who also designed posters for films like the Blues Brothers and Kramer vs. Kramer, this poster appears to be a tribute to Elvis Presley. Elvis (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977) was an American singer and actor. Regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century, he is often referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply the "King".

Presley is one of the most celebrated and influential musicians of the 20th century. Commercially successful in many genres, including pop, country, blues and gospel, he is the best-selling solo artist in the history of recorded music. 

Poster is in overall excellent condition. Unlined. From a private collection.
