Boston Jazz History Blog:
The Rum-Saturated Silver Dollar Bar
Boston jazz historian Richard Vacca’s Boston Jazz Chronicles is an amazing and valuable resource. We encourage jazz musicians and fans to check it out.
In addition, Vacca maintains a beautifully researched blog with regular features about noted people & places that helped shape the Boston-area jazz scene. The current entry is about the long history of the Silver Dollar Bar, in Boston’s Combat Zone. Read about it here.
