Vanguard Jazz Orchestra

Vanguard Jazz Orchestra

Weird how most residency bands tend to be the last ones to be checked out – it just feels like there’s no rush, that there is always the next time… So I’ve wanted to go hear the Vanguard Orchestra forever. Finally did it. Great band really. Sure thing when you want to go hear some great writing, arrangements and playing 😀 Was mostly Thad Jones stuff that night. My favorite tune was something arranged by Bob Minzer, I believe. Yeah, I just love the Vanguard. There’s something about it.
