New York, NY -- In June of 2008, WBGO Jazz 88.3 FM and National Public Radio launched a new series, Live at the Village Vanguard, which offers monthly concerts for live, free streaming on WBGO. As the legendary club prepares to celebrate their 75th anniversary, WBGO's Josh Jackson, host of Live at the Village Vanguard, has been busy setting up an unforgettable lineup of broadcasts.

On December 9, the Dave Douglas Quintet performs new material, yet to be recorded. They'll also be performing arrangements off Douglas' newest release and first for big band, A Single Sky. There has not been a document of this group performing live for the past three years, which isn't the only rarity in this performance. Uri Caine, who is usually heard performing on a Fender Rhodes, will be playing acoustic piano in thiDonny McCaslin on saxophone, James Genus on bass and Clarence Penn on drums.

Recently nominated for a Grammy for Best Improvised Jazz Solo on “All of You", 24-year-old pianist Gerald Clayton makes his Village Vanguard debut in February. WBGO's Live at the Village Vanguard will be there to broadcast his performance on February 10, 2010.

Upcoming broadcasts from Live at the Village Vanguard include:

DEC 09, 2009 :: Dave Douglas Quintet
DEC 31, 2009 :: The Bad Plus (as part of Toast of the Nation)
JAN 20, 2010 :: Lee Konitz Quartet
FEB 10, 2010 :: Gerald Clayton
MAR 10, 2010 :: Nicholas Payton Quartet
APR 14, 2010 :: Sam Yahel Trio

All broadcasts begin at 9PM and can be heard on WBGO Jazz 88.3FM as well as online at WBGO.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
