The other item was forwarded by my cousin, David Balaban. David produced this half hour cable news show documenting the genesis and inside scoop on the club back in 1980. It's really great to hear Red and his compadres discuss the club, Eddie Condon and the world of jazz in NYC from that time. Watching this, I can feel the energy and excitement of the club...I hope you will take the time to listen and watch these.
By the way, there will be an evening of jazz at the Neighborhood Music School in New Haven, CT on July 28th. I hope you can make it there.
