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