Just had to send a shout-out to ‘Local Colors’

If you are shopping for a unique or special gift, then ‘Local Colors’ is the place to visit.  Besides supporting local artists, you will come away with a special appreciation for their work, & of a quality shop with something for everyone’s taste.

I found some great earrings, made of tin — check them out there!  There are many types & styles.  One pair is more fun than the next! 

And, we also purchased our daughter & son-in-law’s 6th anniversary gift — some beautiful photography of rocks at Good Harbor Beach — one of our & their favorite spots.

Bravo, ‘Local Colors!’  You are ‘top of the line’  — with original, beautiful artwork, & a classy, yet comfortable shop to browse & enjoy.

See you again!

Jazz Icons Celebrate Birthdays at the Rudder, Rocky Neck!


Legendary jazz concert promoter Fred Taylor and publicity luminary Sue Auclair were feted at the Rudder Saturday night by local pals Ellyn Baltz and Block Party Block Heads Judith Brackley and Valerie Marcley.

Fred has produced everyone from John Coltrane to the Bobs Dylan and Marley. If you’ve seen a jazz concert in Boston, it was probably one of Fred’s. Throughout his lifelong commitment to music and breaking talent he has introduced us to Richard Prior, Earth Wind and Fire, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Pat Metheny and countless others at his respected jazz clubs, Pall’s Mall and the Jazz Workshop on Boylston Street – remember them? Sue works closely with Fred and for years with the Newport Jazz, Newport Folk, Boston Globe, Tanglewood Jazz and a billion festivals through her Sue Auclair Promotions. The talent these two have worked with – when will they write their books?

Miles Davis once acquiesced that Fred was hipper than he! Sue and Fred handled Miles’ comeback in 1981. Fred’s still producing concerts and is the Entertainment Director of Sculler’s Jazz Club in Allston, turning it into one of the top ten jazz clubs in America.

The lovable Freddy told jokes and did magic tricks to the delight of Rudder patrons. His entourage, always an assortment of adoring women, prompted one woman diner to say, "However old you are, you must be really special to be surrounded by so many beautiful women!" Fred and Sue love the Rudder and come up as often as their schedules allow, and agreed “It’s the tops!” for their dual birthday celebration.


Hey, see our Henri Smith at Sculler’s in August:
