Photos from the vault - the Polaroid series

Speaking of the Fremont Tavern, I took most of these photos there (with the exception of the Blackie Jo James and Mike Lynch/Les Milton pics) with a Polaroid camera that I owned for a while. That explains the less than stellar quality!

There are also a couple of photos here that were taken at the gone, but not forgotten Old Timer's Cafe (Pioneer Square) and the Cotton Club in Seattle's Central District neighborhood. Enjoy!

Great pictures! Leslie Milton is such a beautiful guy... and what the heck is Jeff Ziontz doing? Does anybody hear from him? A great guitar player.

I believe that Jeff has pretty much been concentrating on playing jazz. Last I heard, he was playing with Maia Santell & House Blend. Check her web page here:
