Vivid poster for a 1971 performance by the Charles Tyler Trio at New Orleans House. Started as a jazz club in 1966, this small venue quickly shifted its focus and became primarily a place for lesser-known rock performances until its closure in 1975. Hot Tuna recorded their first album at New Orleans House, and Flamin Groovies performed there regularly.

Charles Tyler was jazz saxophonist who played frequently with Albert Ayler, Ornette Coleman, and Sunny Murray; he recorded his first album as band leader with ESP-Disk in 1966. Tyler moved to Stockholm in 1982 following a European tour with Sun Ra and the Arkestra. A rare artifact from an underdocumented jazz and rock club in Berkeley. Posters and flyers from New Orleans House remain exceedingly rare.
