A great one passes ...

Howard Rumsey, leader of the Lighthouse Allstars gone at 97.

I used to haunt the Lighthouse Cafe in Hermosa Beach when I was in high school back in the middle 1950's. What a great group they were. I suggest that West Coast jazz lovers who post on this site find their music, readily available on Ebay, and add it to their jazz collection.


Happy listening guyz.

Thanks! for sharing- Oregonpapa.

The Lighthouse was a very special Jazz place indeed.
An all "A" list played the Lighthouse- I love collecting those CDs. The sound is excellent, great ambiance. I have often wondered the kind of establishment that sits there in Hermosa Beach now ?

Keep me posted & Happy Listening!
