I used to frequent the club often, and sat in with Papa Jo too, many times.  I was pretty young, but if I recall correctly he really was a fixture on the drums there, and also smiled a whole lot.  I was thinking about the West End recently, and how I also met Eddie Durham there, who played both guitar and trombone... those were some wonderful sessions!

When I was in college in NYC Phil Schaap, who was also a student then, booked jazz across the street at a place called The West End.  I got to see Papa Joe Jones on a regular basis, sometimes many times a week. He was a magician and never failed to excite.
