Village Vanguard celebrates 80 years

Exceptionally I’m posting twice today – I think there’s more than one good reason to do it: It’s been 80 years since The Village Vanguard, the most important jazz club in New York opened, in 1935, at 178 Seventh Avenue South and Blue Note Records made a Spotify playlist including some of the artists that have recorded at the club throughout its existence: Sonny Rollins, Thad Jones, Michel Petrucciani, Benny Green, Joe Henderson, Joe Lovano, Tommy Flanagan, Chucho Valdes, Jason Moran and Bill Charlap are all part of the short list.
