Place Published: Detroit
Date Published: 1970

Description: 1 page, 7.5 x 9 inches, most likely sent from his home in Detroit upon returning from his successful 1970 tour of Europe. Scarce letter on a thin cardboard sheet, in part: "...I hope you believe in better late than never. Sorry about the delay but I was away in Europe. Anyway here 'Tis' and Thanx for asking and lending me your ears all those years. I like to hear from all the Fans and Jazz Clubs. Yours in Jazz Billy Mitchell." Small crease on the upper left corner does not detract; very good condition.

Comments: Jazz Tenor saxophonist known for his close association with fellow Detroit based player Thad Jones. In 1949 he recorded with the Milt Buckner band and later, as one of the founders of Be-Bop, performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, and Lester Young.

Let me take a moment to let you know how pleased I am not only with your timeliness and help, but also your honesty and commitment to your customers. As an instructor at Duquesne University, I am always telling my students about responsibility and, lately, some of the book dealers have given me unnecessary difficulties... I am very pleased with the service I received from your company and will inform my fellow faculty members that they can look forward to professional service from your book shop. Again many thanks and I look forward to future dealings with your company. - Tom W.
