I particularly recall seeing Jack Teagarden in Boston MA back in the
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
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
featuring OKOM groups. Saw Turk many times, bought a drink for Omer Simeon,
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?
