Bill Bacin, founder of the New Orleans Jazz Club of California (NOJCC), died
on January 13, 2001 at his home in Kerrville, Texas after a short illness.
The NOJCC was intended as a club that would never meet. Rather, through The
Jazzologist, it would promote live paid jazz. Bill published The
Jazzologist, a quarterly publication, for 20 years. Upon it's retirement
120 of his friends purchased the largest size billboard available along
Bill's favorite route in Kerrville. It said:
STOV FOR NOJCC
DYKWIMTM BILL BACIN
