I dont know if youve been here this long, but we used to have a club downtown called Gentleman Jims Jazz Club that was AWESOME.
Ray Charles, BB King, Stanley Jordan, John Scofield, The JB's etc used to come here and put on GREAT shows! The demand for jazz downtown disappeared around the late 80s and it closed down.
We never had the problems then downtown like we do now...and it was very multi-racial then, maybe more so than now. It just didnt seem as "self-segregated" then as it does now.
