When the Artists Quarter in St Paul closed on New Year's Eve, it left a large void in the Twin Cities jazz scene - the only full time, true-to-the-music jazz club where Cheers and the Village Vanguard seemed to merge, a haven for young musicians as well as veterans, where the main activity was listening. The final weekend offered two nights of open jams and a grand last New Year's Eve Party; the crowds were the largest ever and the music--some of the most inspiring. AQ owner Kenny Horst spent much of the time behind the trapset himself. The weekend jam was everything a night at a jazz club should be...and too often isn't. And NY Eve-- for Auld Lang Syne. Here's to you Kenny Horst, and to all of the musicians who defined jazz.
