Slugs' in the Far East - coming events for January and February, 1971.Slugs', New York , 1971 Stock Code: 107891
NotesRecord of a superb series of residencies at notorious New York jazz club Slugs' in the Far East. Donald Byrd is scheduled from 12-17 January, Leon Thomas 19-24, Elvin Jones 26-31, Lee Morgan 2-7 February, and McCoy Tyner 9-14. Opening its doors on 242 East 3rd Street in 1964, the club began as a neighbourhood bar known as Slugs' Saloon, the location having previously been home to a Ukrainian restaurant and bar. By early 1965, despite having a capacity of just around 100 people, it began to morph into one of the key jazz clubs of the city as local musicians convinced the owners Robert Schoenholt and Jerry Schultz to feature live music; in time it would come to rival the Five Spot Café as one of the top jazz spots in the East Village. Just a year later in the early hours of the morning of 19 February 1972, Lee Morgan was shot to death by his common-law wife Helen More at Slugs'. The club closed later that year.
