Jazz in NYC: Tom Harrell at the Village Vanguard (review)

While in NYC recently, I had the pleasure of checking out a few great jazz shows.

Glad I got the chance to hear the great trumpeter and flugelhorn player Tom Harrell‘s quintet at the Vanguard, bassist Santi Debriano‘s quartet at Smalls, and vibraphonist Jason Marsalis‘s group at the Jazz Standard (more about these later).

Harrell at the Vanguard

On Harrell, I wrote: “It was the most sonically stripped-down moment, and perhaps the most dramatic: About midway through his first set on a recent Thursday night at New York’s venerable Village Vanguard, three of Tom Harrell’s bandmates slipped off stage, leaving the veteran brass player and prolific composer alone except for bassist Ugonna Okegwo, who stood at the rear of the small stage.”
