bids fair to continue another 10 years.
What's new is a nice old porch to hang
out on on Westheimer, going by the name
of 131 Westheimer, opened in September
by Marcellus Wandres, a young man interested in preserving the character not
only of his modest mansion but the neighborhood as well. If any neighborhood
could stand preserving, it is lower Westheimer, too, and Wandres' weapons are the
5-cent refill on coffee, out of town newspapers, and homemade sandwiches, including the Smorgasbord with his secret
ingredient spread abroad. Donuts are still
usually manufactured, but he intends to
remedy that as soon as funds permit, as
well as to open the restored front room
of his house to trade. His window is open
24 hours a day.
Then, at 808 Lovett are two new ventures: Bob Kaufman's Graphic Expressions
and Dennis Grevsky's Jazzroom. Kaufman works in a glass factory days and
opens up his graphics gallery weekdays
at 4:30 and weekends for the walking
trade around the tree-lined street. He has
three rooms full of framed posters for
sale and if you don't see it on the wall,
he has a great catalog service and can
special order most anything. So if you
want Imogene Cunninghams or Cartier
Bressonsunderglass,dropby. Good prices.
Across the hall is the Jazzroom, a small
specialty store with new and used records,
books and magazines all devoted to Grevsky's favorite topic. Grevsky worked previously at Roy's Memory Shop near Shepherd, a comic, record, and poster shop,
and applied what he learned there to jazz.
Grevsky carries a lot of small players' labels that larger houses won't touch, such
as India, Navigation, Black Saint, previously only available by mail here. He has used
and cut out records. Grevsky says he had
to wait in line for five hours for about
every one of the five licenses needed to
open the store. "I probably won't make
a million - but at least I can listen to jazz
all day long now." Among his favorite local jazz musicians is Bobby Henson, pianist, who has been featured Tuesdays to
Saturdays at Las Brisas on Grey. "I can't
tell you my favorite band, said Grevsky,
"every time I go out and hear the groups,
seems like I see the same faces, but the
band name is different - it's a world in
At 3221 Milam, Farrel Dyde and a
group of local arts activists have just begun
an alternative space for performance art
called 3221 Milam or 3221 for short. At
the October 10 opening jazz pianist
Bonnie Brown and improvisationalist
Charley Gerrard performed, and a couple
of nights later Shake Russell and John
Van Der Ville starred at a gala champagne
benefit. Dyde, the director of Space Dance
Theater Unlimited said the new place will
be busy throughout the month, with other
highlights a Halloween party featuring
Really Red and Culturecideand November
dance performances by his group and
avante garde guitarist Henry Kaiser. 3221
was the result of a chance encounter between Dyde and Pacifica's Margie Glaser
after Jim Kamela's concert at the Contemporary Arts Museum. She recalled:
"We were all just standing around complaining that Houston needed more performance space, something for alternative
performances — and we all just decided,
conversation, to do something about it.
The umbrella group behind the effort is
called Houston Alliance for the Performance Arts, and it is looking for new music and performance groups." Phone them
Also scouting around is Paula Fridkin,
a new partner in Professional Musicians
Referral Center, Inc. She is desperate, she
says, for women musicians and performing
groups, but Marty Smith, of the same
firm, said: "We need all the musicians we
can get." PMRC is something like a musical employment agency. It has handled
thousands of job or musician requests,
with no charge for employers and minimal
fees to the individual. Fridkin arid Smith
also maintain a musical tape library of lo-
cal talent, so a tentative, taped audition
can help make some preliminary choices
for those looking for a new Charlie Pride
or Parker. "We get all sorts of calls," said
Smith, " a lot even from out-of-state saying, 'fly us in a jazz musician.'
"Houston is still not up to where it
should be musically, but it is fast getting
there, and we'd like to think we had a
hand in it, performing a needed service."
Tastes, he said, "remain about the same
in town: requests are running about 100
percent for jazz players, and the rest split
evenly between rock, country music and
top 40 performers. Fridkin and Smith are
at 8208 Westpark, 975-0797.
A new gallery opened the first week of
October, the Anchorange Foundation's
house at 5120 Bayard Lane behind the
Jung Educational Center and the House
of Dreams on Montrose. The first show at
the old/new place, which will have a preservation and architectural emphasis, was
that of Daniel Liebskind of Detroit. Lieb-
skind is of the M. C. Esher school - now
you see it, now you don't, but the house
is well worth a loving look.
The man who built it, in 1921-22,
Alfred C. Finn, will go down in history
as far as his other structure, the San
Jacinto Monument, sinks in the Texas
sand. Finn, a great humanist and humorist as well, is said to have replied when informed the monument was sinking: "Well,
it'll make a helluva time capsule!" Well,
the Anchorage is away in a beautiful, un-
sinkable structure and its worthwhile
goal of preservation is especially important in the museum area, now being eaten
alive by condo-crazed developers.
