Octogenarian saxophone legend Dr. Herman Green is one of Memphis' most loved and respected musicians. Some recent health problems have left him in a bad spot, so his friends have organized a concert to help him out. And Dr. Green has a lot of friends.

This Saturday, November 10th, beginning at 3 p.m. and running until the wee hours of Sunday, Rum Boogie Cafe will be packed wall to wall with some prime Memphis talent, thanks to his friend and longtime bandmate in Freeworld, Richard Cushing, and Memphis Blues Society board member Mark E.
