Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra

Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra

This is the Vanguard’s house band, originally they were known as the Thad Jones and Mel Lewis big band of 1966 ,they  have  performed at the Village Vanguard  jazz club ever since. They play the music of Thad Jones, Slide Hampton, and Bob Brookmeyer. Recently they won a Grammy for their Monday Night Live album on the Planet Arts Label. I have 3 of their albums:

village-vanguard-monday-night-livevjovjo3

They are a great modern jazz big band and I highly recommend their music.
