DJ icon Slim Hyatt rings in 90 at jazz club


Slim Hyatt, who was the original DJ at iconic 1970s New York spot Le Club, was just spotted on the town for his 90th birthday, spies told Page Six.

We hear that Hyatt was seen heading into the jazz club Birdland — with a date — to celebrate.

He also DJed at Doubles from 1984 to 1995, and has been called by the painter and bandleader Peter Duchin “the first discotheque artist in New York.”

Duchin was in the military in Panama when first met Hyatt.

Back in New York, when Le Club owners Oleg and Igor Cassini and Olivier Coquelin needed a DJ, Duchin was asked and said, “I’ve got the perfect guy for you!” The rest is history. Happy birthday!
