Christine Plays It Hot

Christine Plays It Hot
Certi-Craft Company - Studio City, California

From the back cover: The sophisticated audience of the Hickory House in New York City kept her there for as long as she would consent to stay and clamored for more.

Much of her professional career has been spent in private clubs in Birmingham, Alabama.

The Downtown Club, The Astronaut Restaurant, The Relay House – beautiful private club overlooking the bright lights of the city – are just a few fortunate enough to have headlined Christine – and her "hot" keyboard.

She is in constant demand for conventions and is usually booked solid. Convention calls have taken her to Texas, Florida, Kentucky, Missouri, Georgia, Illinois, Mississippi or just about any state you can mention

...The Astronaut Restaurant!!! I wonder what that place looked like?

Top Of The Flame - The James Cohen Trio

Top Of The Flame
The James Cohen Trio
Orbit Records - Curtis, Detroit

From the back cover: In the fall of 1969 Jim, Frank and Mac took their places in the Oriental atmosphere of the Top of the Flame, atop the modern Michigan Consolidated Gas Company Building in downtown Detroit, sharing top billing with one of the city's best views of the riverfront and neighboring Canada.

At first glance, the boys might seem out of place among the pagoda motif, kimona-clad waitresses, the Chinese and Siamese antiques. But their subtle jazz stylings add just the right touch to match the tasty East-meets-West menu.
