This sonic adventure into NYC’s longest existing jazz club includes historical recordings from John Coltrane, Betty Carter, Bill Evans, Geri Allen, Charlie Haden, Dexter Gordon and Art Pepper and others. We will also feature a rare recording by Japanese pianist and recording artist Junko Onishi, the only southeast Asian to have their music recorded at the Village Vanguard.
