Hi Phil,

Nice to commune with you.

Okay, I parenthetically inserted "gangster" because it was my understanding that the Mob had the club scene, especially in Black neighborhoods, all wrapped up. If Ed Smalls actually was just an owner-operator, more power to him. I thought if Connie Immerman (the bootlegger) and Owney Madden (the gangster) were club owners, could Small's Paradise be far behind?
