Show Summary Details

Preview

Jim and Andy's was a popular restaurant and bar near where the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) was situated, where music contractors hung out a lot, therefore, musicians too. It had the hippest jukebox in town, with the number of selections somewhere between one hundred fifty and two hundred songs, and used to play continuously. It was also a place for great connections. The musicians who hung out there, described as top-shelf musicians, were capable of doing whatever was asked of them. Eventually, Rockefeller bought the property where Jim's place was. So Jim bought another place and moved. As Clark indicates, Jim and Andy's was a “home away from home” for the band.
