"It's carrying on that legacy of where jazz started, in the nightclubs, late at night, sometimes going into the next morning. I love the fact that we're playing those hours, that's where jazz started. It didn't start in concert halls or (with) performance seating, it was in a nightclub." - Sabertooth co-founder Pat Mallinger talking about the legacy of late night jazz.
