WAYJO Tribute Series: Thad Jones & Mel Lewis - Live at the Village Vanguard
Saturday 16 September 7.00pm
From 1966 to the present day, legendary New York jazz club The Village Vanguard has been the Monday night home to the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra, and now the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra.
Live at the Village Vanguard captured the band barely one year old and features some of the most memorable modern big band compositions and solos.
2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the release of this classic album, and the Wednesday Night Orchestra will bring the tradition of big band swing, bebop and hard bop to life in this highlight
of the annual program.
