I used to live in the same apartment building that Ray Linn did on Arch Drive in Studio City, Ca. in the early 1970's. Pianist Pat Manago also resided there. It was just down Ventura Blvd. frome The Times Jazz Club where I used to hear Irene Kral sing with Alan Broadbent. Thanks for posting and jogging my memory.

Hi there, GREAT site! My grandmother Marge Murphy used to sing with Ray & the Chicago Stompers in the 70s & 80s.I recall being dragged in to King Arthurs out in the valley a few friday nights, Abe Lincoln poking with his trombone slide,Jack Sperling showing me how to do a double flam on the drums. Jazz Forum at Larchmont Hall on sunday afternoons....Who knew that what seemed like a punishment back then would be such fond memories now? Again, great site.

P.S. I never new that that "old guy" Gene Estes played with Frank Zappa 'til about 20 minutes ago.They shoulda' told me! :)
