My genius friend and jazz scholar, among other things, Michael Steinman, first taught me that “Louie” was a publicly-assigned nickname and that the legend actually went by LouiS. I’m guessing other scholars will catch up.
And now Mr. Steinman has a blog by which he will inform us all of the happenings in New York City’s jazz world, along with those of a few other locales when he travels. Please visit Jazz Lives if you’ve ever cared for the world of jazz.
