Swingin’ Schwartz’s Point: Ed Moss Left a Major Musical Impact on Cincinnati that Still Reverberates Today
By Russell Hausfeld
A triangular building with a huge clock atop it overlooks Vine Street in Cincinnati. Inside, the walls are lined in fabric, rugs and thick curtains to help dampen the sound. Flickering candles on triangular tables provide a wavering low light, painting the room with an intimate atmosphere. For the last two decades, jazz pianist Ed Moss could be found sitting at the piano in the front of the room, face in the keys. This club, Schwartz’s Point, was his passion project.

Weekly Jam Sessions at Northside’s Liberty Exhibition Hall Lounge Bring Jazz to a New Generation
By Anne Arenstein
A jam session can be serious business for musicians in any genre. It’s typically about honing one’s chops with peers, often battling for solo supremacy with an audience limited to other musicians. But that’s not the vibe at Northside’s Liberty Exhibition Hall Lounge, where increasing numbers of jazz fans show up on Monday nights to hear the house band and a jam session featuring many of the area’s top artists and astounding young talent. During Liberty Jazz Lab, audiences hear exciting performances in a venue whose retro seating vignettes and lighting recall 1950s and early 1960s jazz lounges that create energy shared by both sides of the stage.

Review: Court Street’s Mid City Restaurant is a Casual Dining Spot That’s Up for a Good Time
By CityBeat Dining Critic, Pama Mitchell
It took a couple of tries for me to fully appreciate the allure of Mid City, a relatively new bar and restaurant on Court Street. But friends kept telling me to give Mid City another shot.

The location certainly is prime – at the northern edge of downtown and easily accessible to Over-the-Rhine – as well.
