In 1964, I got to hear Jackie sing live. He was appearing in an upscale, allegedly mob-connected night club in Worcester, MA. I was amazed to find out he was playing in my hometown, Worcester, not exactly the first place you'd think of that he'd be found (although I did hear Bird and Dizzy there 10 years earlier). I went with a friend, and we were two of about 10 people in the club. Very sad. Jackie was excellent; I never thought that I was seeing one of the last gigs he'd play for a very long time.
