Do you have any information on the clubs Little Paris or Kitty Kat?

I think this was the old Club MoonGlow. I used to go there once in awhile back then and never gave it a thought being a white boy in a black club..

I remember this place very well. Had many a great Saturday evening in the mid-1950's listening to a lot of fine music. I worked at a company in the old Larkin warehouse complex called McCormick Industries. It was there that I met a fellow who invited me to come to the club due to the fact that he found out I liked 'Jazz' music. He played the piano. His name was Jimmy Greene. His wife was a jazz singer who went by the name of 'Do Do' Greene. His brother played the bass and he was called 'Bo Peep'. A lot of the great jazz muscians would stop by for a jam session when they passed through Buffalo to some 'gig' on the East coast.
