Posted on another trad jazz list by Eric Hassell:

"Peter Ballance told me that Jack Fine dropped in to Arthur's Tavern  
last week, and that he is in Treme.  I hadn't been watching the show,  
but when I heard that I turned it on. Sure enough, Jack is there,  
though in the scenes I saw he didn't have any lines.  I guess I'll  
have to watch the show from now on.  I don't know how long Jack is  
back in town, Peter said he'd find out."

Trumpeter Jack Fine gigged in NYC way back in the 40s, 50s and 60s at  
various clubs and with various musos including me. We went on the road  
together one summer. He moved to the New Orleans area and may still be  
living there. I suspect his visit to Arthur's in NYC was part of a  
trip. I don't think he plays anymore being north of 80 and having been  
through bypass surgery.

Has anyone who knows him seen him on Treme?
