Learn More about a Legendary Jazz Impresario

On November 20, the Boston Globe featured a front-page story on Lennie Sogoloff, who ran the legendary West Peabody jazz club Lennie's-on-the-Turnpike. Now 87 and retired, Sogoloff is booking musical acts at the nursing home where he lives.

The online version of the Boston Globe is now available only to paid subscribers, but Berklee users have access to the content via ProQuest, which also offers a more robust advanced search function than the Globe's own web site. Berklee users can access this under "Search Articles & More" from the library's home page. To see this article from off campus, you may be prompted for your wireless PIN.
