TT 61: Streaming at the Village Vanguard/Wynton Kelly + horns/Kenny Barron

The Village Vanguard commences streaming this weekend with the Billy Hart quartet featuring Mark Turner, Ben Street, and me. 7 PM on Saturday, 2 in the afternoon Sunday. $7 a set…one time only, not archived. Tickets available at the website.

My latest Chronology for JazzTimes is about three amazing documents: Wynton Kelly and the late great Jimmy Cobb at the Left Bank with Joe Henderson, Hank Mobley, and George Coleman…Paul Chambers, Cecil McBee, and Ron McClure are the bassists.

Thanks to Mark Stryker, Ron McClure, and Hyland Harris for help with this essay.


Kenny Barron turned 77 yesterday; I put a little note up on DTM for the maestro.
