The first concert report I am doing is the one I attended with my fiancée on September 14 of this year at the House of Blues in Los Angeles. The Group that was preforming was Stone Temple Pilots which happens to be her all-time favorite group. I can start by saying that the atmosphere was pretty laid back with a lot of people in my age group attending.

By the early 1930's I had started collecting jazz records. After some college years I got a job in Los Angeles and in 1937 met David Stuart and began hanging out in his Hollywood record store on my days off. The Jazz Man Record Shop was the only record store anywhere at that time, I believe, that carried only jazz. He wouldn't even stock records by the hot swing bands, Goodman, Shaw and such. Early on I had started collecting Bix and then early Armstrong, Oliver, Clarence Williams and such groups and to some extent Morton records.
