I’LL SEE YOU AT NICK’S

If only we could:

NICK'S IN GREENWICH VILLAGE

The ladies will be there, too:

NICK'S IN GREENWICH VILLAGE rear

In June 1952, according to TIME, Phil Napoleon was there (possibly with Kenny Davern) — music to my ears and everyone else’s.

And when we go to Nick’s, I should bring a notebook.  Maybe some of the musicians will give us their autographs?  Here’s the evidence (courtesy of the Riverwalk Jazz site and the daughter of a fan who went there 150 nights — true devotion!):

and

Nicks003

I know Gourmet Garage — the current replacement for Nick’s — has wonderful coffee and a cheese display, but somehow it isn’t the same thing.

Thanks to one of JAZZ LIVES’ friends — Charlie Decker — for sending this along for all of us to muse on.

May your happiness increase!

    Great. First band I ever saw was Phil Napoleon at Nicks but never got autographsBrad Gowans, PeeWee, Hackett and Haggart. Somethin else.

  2. Great to see the interior of this legendary jazz joint

  3. I’m a little confused. What did Charlie send to you? I bought this post card off of eBay just recently. Did he send you the link to see it? I’d gladly trade it for those autographs!!

  4. Charlie alerted me to these things online — they remain in the ether! Wishing you warmth!
