I met Herb Jeffries when I landed in Seattle during the 1962 World's Fair. He was the featured singer at a club on the site starring his wife, the renowned stripper Tempest Storm.

As a young drummer, this was my first foray into the world of burlesque and, while not musically rewarding, it did provide for some pleasant distractions. Jeffries' singing being the least of them.

Thanks for rekindling some old memories, Marc.

John P. Cooper

I met him in my store about twelve years ago. Pleasant fellow.

And I saw him perform at the Sportmen's Lodge in Studio City, just outside of LA about the same time. Sounded great.

Odd event - as Herb Jeffries began to sing, Steve Allen, who was sitting up front, got up from his table and walked out. What was up with that?
