New Date - 22./23.04.2021: A Night at the Village VanguardEnde der weiteren Informationen
»Village Vanguard« - in white capital letters on a red background, these two words are written in front of the entrance to Seventh Avenue, No. 178, Manhattan. For two evenings we transfer the Village Vanguard to the hr-Sendesaal in Frankfurt, celebrating the music of one of the pioneering ensembles of jazz: the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. For decades, every Monday evening, the band meets there and plays the arrangements of its major orchestra conductors Thad Jones, Mel Lewis, Bob Brookmayer and Jim McNeely. Dick Oatts and Gary Smulyan, two of the outstanding and style-making soloists of the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, will be on stage with the Frankfurt Radio Big Band for this tribute. The band is proud to present their very own »Night at the Village Vanguard« with chief conductor and New Yorker Jim McNeely.
