The V-Note is a jazz-club frequented by the Crew. McClintic Sphere plays jazz here.
"The solos of McClintic Sphere were something else. There were people around, mostly those who wrote for Downbeat magazine or the liners of LP records, who seemed to feel he played disregarding chord changes completely. They talked a great deal about sould and the anit-intellectual and the rising rhythms of African nationalism. It was a new conception, they said, and some of them said: Bird Lives" (p. 59-60).
Poor McClintic is often tortured by fools who request Night Train and other "favorites" (p. 280).
Soon after his introduction to the crew,
Profane is dragged here by Pig. After fighting with Mafia,
Roony comes here to talk with McClintic.
