Los Angeles in the mid 1950s was a haven for jazz artists and their fans.  Numerous jazz clubs provided the opportunity for fans to appreciate jazz in a stimulating and appreciative atmosphere, and the television and movie studio work gave jazz artists an additional avenue to keep their chops and check books balanced.

One of the more active jazz clubs to emerge in the early 1950s was Maynard Sloate’s JAZZ CITY. It was located in a building at 5510 Hollywood Boulevard where it intersected with Western Avenue.  Another popular club, PEACOCK LANE was across the street at 5505 Hollywood Boulevard.  The ads below are from the November & December 1956 issues of Down Beat, and reveal the typical bookings at the more active jazz clubs in Los Angeles.

The heyday of jazz clubs in Los Angeles would begin to fade as the 1950s wore on.  The notice below is from John Tynan’s Hollywood column in Down Beat, April 4, 1957.  Dave Pell’s photo of the front of the club (above) was taken around the time of the Bethlehem recording session prior to the close of Jazz City.

HOLLYWOOD - April 4, 1957

NITERY NOTES: Jazz City breathes its last the 21st. New operators will not  continue jazz policy, and the place will have a new name. Bethlehem Records was set to record the action there on closing night with Mel Lewis' new quintet among those to be taped . . . Yet another jazz club to change hands in the recent radical reshuffle of niteries is the Tiffany. New owner Max Factor (huh?) says he'll keep jazz policy but was skedding a calypso group at presstime to follow Jack Costanzo . . .Whisling's, also due to go on the sales block, reportedly will continue with
jazz, dispensed by the Wame Marsh quintet with Ronnie Ball . . . Shelly Manne and His Men have been packing 'em in at The Topper out Rosemead way. They'll continue there till around April 7.
