Happy Birthday, Village Vanguard

Yesterday, the Village Vanguard had its 75th anniversary.

To celebrate, Cafe Salemba plays some memorable live recordings from that mecca of jazz. Here is the line-up and you can listen to the youtube link we put on the song's title:

1. Sonny Rollins' Old Devil Moon, from the album A Night at the Village Vanguard, 1957
2. Bill Evans' Alice in Wonderland, from Sunday at the Village Vanguard, 1961
3. John Coltrane's Spiritual from Live! at Village Vanguard, 1961
4. Brad Mehldau's Monk's Dream from The Art of the Trio 2, Live at the Village Vanguard, 1997 (sorry, no youtube link found)

Enjoy and please don't spill the coffee over the last AER you just read.
