R.I.P. Art D'Lugoff.

Art D'Lugoff ran the Village Gate in Greenwich Village for almost 40 years opening 1n 1958. It was a club that saw plenty talent pass through it's doors and its memory was held in much esteem. On my one and only visit to 'The Village', after buying a jazz CD in Bleeker Street Records, a guy pointed to a store on the corner and said, "Village Gate used to be there". Before I could reply he moved on. If you follow this link you'll find out more about The 'Gate and Art D'Lugoff. Art died Nov. 4, 2009, age 85. Lance.
