Containing Multitudes Since 2004
I was in Manny's Music Store in Manhattan this week, and there was an autographed photo of Goodman and Krupa behind the till, autographed to Manny himself. Along with similarly inscribed photos from Ella Fitzgerald, Buddy Holly and the Crickets, the Kinks, Louis Jordan (an astonishing non-smiling shot I'd never seen before), T-Bone Walker, Loog Oldham-era Rolling Stones, Billie Holiday, Count Basie, Keith Moon, the Ramones, Chet Atkins and so on...well, it was enough to make a music lover a little misty eyed.
wish i'd known about manny's when i was in nyc last month. i'da been drooling.
