There's a lot of great photos at the site Hardbobjazz linked to in the original post. I love this one.
That makes me nostalgic for a place and time I've never experienced. One can almost hear that photo. Wonderful.
It kinda looks like the start to a great 1950's mystery/comedy TV series about the fun-loving adventures of a millionaire heiress with a penchant for solving crimes and her jazz musician "companion" who goes along for the ride to get her out of the tight spots -- with both the criminals and the authorities, usually in the person of Inspector Haverman, played by William Demerast -- she so often finds herself in. Tonight's episode: "Crepuscule With Murder."
Interesting to learn that both Club Zanzibar and Bop City were in the Brill Building.
I love this set. The worst albums IMO are Feets Don't Fail Me Now and Monster but in hindsight the Laswell trilogy isn't nearly as bad as I thought it'd be back when I was a snob. I thought the Wounded Bird discs had identical masterings but I guess not. Their cover reproductions were quite poor.
