The Andy Brown Trio will be performing A Night at the Vanguard by the Kenny Burrell Trio.
A Night at the Vanguard was a live album recorded in 1959 at the Village Vanguard, a jazz club located in Greenwich Village, New York City. The club was opened in 1935 by Max Gordon as a forum for poets and artists as well as a site for musical performances. By 1957 Gordon put jazz acts at the top of the bill and was a host to many recording sessions that are regarded as masterpieces in its basement with players such as Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and Bill Evans.
The original album features Kenny Burrell on guitar, Richard Davis on Bass and Roy Haynes on drums.
Michael G. Nastos of allmusic.com states, "For music done in 1959, this is heady, seat-of-the-pants, brilliantly executed jazz that is mostly based in standards, but stretched to exacting tolerances that bend, but are not close to breaking. This is Burrell and his extraordinary trio very close to, if not truly in their prime, and their element."
