The Wedge

I was listening to Jerry Blavat’s show on WXPN when he mentioned The Wedge. It never ceases to amaze me how many jazz clubs there were in Philly in the 1940s, ’50s, ’60s and well into the ’70s. While everyone knows about the legendary Pep’s, Showboat and Blue Note, those spots are the tip of the iceberg.

Located on Ridge Avenue in North Philly, Bull Moose Jackson, a saxophonist and rhythm and blues singer, performed there.
