FORTY-FOUR CENTS ADMISSION, AND DINNER FROM A DOLLAR: FRANK NEWTON, VIC DICKENSON, FRANZ JACKSON, ARTHUR HERBERT and OTHER LUMINARIES (October 1942, Boston)

In a radio interview with a very young Nat Hentoff, Newton said this was a very happy experience.  And with this band, how could we go wrong?

  1. Joanne Horton

    When was this????When did Frankie Newton die?

  2. Stompy Jones

    That’s two weeks’ allowance, but I’ll save up and meet you there!

  3. This is circa 1947, and Newton died in 1954.

  4. Is your allowance being adjusted for inflation?

  5. Vic Dickerson, eh?
    Prepping my time machine, hop in!

    FN was a unique and irreplaceable player.

  6. It’s been a long time since any musician was described as being “on the Chicago kick.”
