Wow, wow, and wow! Your readers should know that Arthurs Tavern (I would put an apostrophe in there, but that's training) still exists and offers jazz on Monday nights (the Grove Street Stompers) and Sundays (the Creole Cookin' Jazz Band) as well as other nights. It remains a grotty, dark place with limp strings of Christmas lights up all year, but you can't find a more authentic atmosphere. On Mondays, as well, I've heard Bill Dunham lead jam sessions featuring Joe Licari, Joe Muranyi, Scott Black, Kevin Dorn, Randy Reinhart, Rossano Sportiello . . . worth visiting!

"You're not paying attention." LOL!
