There has been considerable talk on the DJML the last few days on Jews 
IN Jazz, but I think not enough of the Jewish jazz supporters. I once 
attended a two day performance by the legend, Benny Carter, at the Jazz 
Bakery in Los Angeles.  The Friday performance was apparently on a 
Jewish Holiday. The audience was quite small. The following evening, 
after the holiday, was  a full house.  It was a clear demonstration to 
me at least of how important the support of the "Jewish community" was 
to the jazz scene in LA at that time, such as it was.  The weather was 
good both days. I can think of no other factors.
