"Some people try to get very philosophical and cerebral about what they're trying to say with jazz. You don't need any prologues, you just play. If you have something to say of any worth then people will listen to you." "I don't do something because I think it will sell 30 million albums." Oscar Peterson
Featured Jazz Bar - The Village Vanguard
The neighbourhood of Greenwich Village is the spot in New York City to head to if you want to see some of the best names in jazz up close and personal. And the Village Vanguard is one of the area’s stalwarts. A jazz-focused venue since 1957, all of the genre’s greats have graced its basement stage – Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Mingus – while a 19-year-old Barbra Streisand even performed there in 1961. Today, it hosts short residencies with some of America’s best outfits, with each band performing twice a night. Alternatively, you can swing by on a Monday night and witness a show by the venue’s house band, The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, which has been performing in one guise or another for 50 years.
