In 1950 George Wein opened a club in Boston called Storyville.

I am not going to post about Storyville.

I recommend JazzWax interview with George Wein. Go here and here

I will introduce a topic that is impressive for me.

Wednesday,March 9, Charlie Parker started for Boston, where he was to play a weekend engagement at Storyville.

Unfortunately his cabaret card had been revoked in 1951.

So between 1951 and 1954, Parker appeared five times as a leader at the Hi-Hat and twice more at Storyville.

He worked as a single, usually playing with house trios and an added trumpeter.

George Wein added a second band to the bill for March 10-16 because he predicted Parker’s absence.

Lee Konitz had prepared as the second band for Parker’s absence.

He died in the New York apartment of Baroness Nica in March 12.

It took several days for the news to make it to Boston.

Then Konitz had moved on, and Count Basie’s band was at Storyville.
