Ah, Scolley Square, that infamous subway ("T") station where Charlie  
couldn't get off the train...
I don't recall a jazz club called Scully's, but certainly Connolly's.

There was a South End club called Connolly's where Steve  Schwartz hung 
out.  I suppose you could conflate Scullers and  Connolly's and come up 
with Scully's.  But as Eric says, there was  also Scolley Square, center 
of burlesque in Boston, now Government  Center.  (Does that represent 
progress?) Bechet played a show there  around 1920 and dated Johnny 
Hodges' sister at the  time.
