  60's in a venue that I thought was far "below" his level.

  What a shame!


Was that venue the Savoy Cafe, on Massachusetts Ave? Small, but clean, with
a constant 
stream of OKOM bands from all over.

I spent lots of time there in the 50's and 60's, as it was one of the few
Boston venues 
featuring OKOM groups.  Saw Turk many times, bought a drink for Omer Simeon,
and was 
there the night that Jimmy McPartland took a break and introduced us to his
new British wife 
Marion Page McPartland!

If not the Savoy, then where?
