I just picked up an exceptional book on Boston's jazz history called The Boston Jazz Chronicles - Faces, Places, and Nightlife 1937 - 1962.
The few sections I've read so far are captivating and beautifully recreate this pivotal time in our fair city's transition from an economically depressed backwater to what it is today.

Jean described how she maintained her own identity and how we all have a responsibilty to ourselves to follow our bliss.

Tickets are available online at http://www.dci.org/cinema

I'll be rooting for the home team - The Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps.
They've been around since 1940 and they rock!

At least, that's what the signs now say on the front of the old NuVo on Washington Street (across from the Dunkin' Donuts). According to EveryBlock, the new place got a restaurant license on Sept. 30, under the name Jazz Cafe.

So this newly uncovered Gusto sign seen today is probably just in the process of getting taken down:

Con much Gusto?

Josh and Jessi were walking past Ryles last night when they noticed a drum inside with "Basie" written on it. Yep, the Count Basie Orchestra was playing. They quickly bought some tickets:

... It was an unbudgeted, spur of the moment, $50 expense. But boy was it worth it. They were amazing. Every single musician in the band, upright bass, piano, guitar, two tenor saxes, two alto saxes, a bari sax, three trombones, a bass trombone, and four trumpets, was fantastic. ...
