Taken from the Manchester Independent newspaper, written and edited by University of Manchester students.

According to John Irving, on the wonderful Manchester Beat website (see link), "The MSG Jazz cellar was the place to be when any visiting American stars were on at the Free Trade Hall because after the show they invariably ended up at the MSG to jam with whoever was that night's featured act. I remember standing next to Teddy Wilson while we queued for a hot pot supper! Fame or what? Alex Welsh's band always went down a storm and often supported featured American stars. Top venue."
