The Day | The Cats of Tompkins Square Park (Jazz Cats, That Is)

Good morning, East Village.

A couple of jazz fixtures are back in Tompkins Square Park: While DNA Info previews this weekend’s Charlie Parker Jazz Festival (Sunday’s East Village installment will be headlined by Archie Shepp), EV Grieve notes that Giuseppi Logan, who recorded for the legendary ESP label and went on to live a life checkered with homelessness, is back to playing sax on his bench after hip surgery. The Local caught up with Mr. Logan last November, as you can see in the video above.

Ephemeral New York points to an entry in “The Inside Guide to Greenwich Village” indicating that the fabled St. Marks club The Dom only made it six months before it was invaded by “another element” with “absolutely no cool whatsoever.”

Gothamist points out that “On The Bowery,” Lionel Rogosin’s vérité portrait of the Bowery circa 1957, will return to Film Forum in November.
