Cleveland SGS has two favorite local jazz historians, Joe Mossbrook and Dr. Walking Bill. This powerful jazz duo furnished SGS with the following information about the Happy Dog Saloon, “operated by Roger Bohn from 1971 to 1975, artists such as McCoy Tyner, Weather Report, Oregon, Cannonball Adderley, Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans, Gil Evans, Charlie Mingus, Keith Jarrett, Miles Davis and Sun Ra” all played at the Dog. Additionally SGS found this scan from a visit by SGS favorite Pharoah Sanders.
