NYC Gets Its Mojo Back!
NYC gets its Mojo back with live streaming at two city jazz staples.
The iconic Village Vanguard will begin with two 75-minute sets—June 13 at 7 p.m. EDT and June 14 at 2 p.m.—from a quartet led by drummer Billy Hart, who first played the Vanguard in singer-pianist Shirley Horn’s band, in 1961. Save for the band and a three-person crew, the club will be empty. “But you can’t really be alone in the Vanguard,” Mr. Hart said, “because our community is embedded in those walls.” – villagevanguard.com/
