So What: Local News, Notes & Links

Here's this week's wrap-up of assorted links and short news items of local interest:

* According to posts on social media, Music Record Shop has relocated from the Grove neighborhood to Grand Center.

The retailer will take up residence in temporary space at 3526 Washington (right next door to KDHX) until January, when they'll move into a permanent home in the district's new "arts incubator" .ZACK - and yes, it's pronounced "dot zack" - in the former Cadillac Building at 3224 Locust St (pictured).

* The website has published online a photo set from last Saturday's Hermann Wine & Jazz Festival.

* Dan Connor, drummer and bandleader for Miss Jubilee, was profiled in the Belleville News-Democrat.

* The MAXJAZZ catalog of jazz recordings has been acquired by the Detroit-based Mack Avenue label. The St. Louis based independent label had been essentially dormant since the death of founder Richard McDonnell in February, 2014.
