A Note About Devices...

Using cell phones, cameras, iPads, androids, etc. during the music is both distracting and inconsiderate to your neighbors as well as the musicians performing. Here at the Vanguard, we strive for a device-free zone. It’s about experiencing the music, in the moment, at the club. We challenge you to remain hands-off your devices for the 75 odd (occasionally very odd) minutes of the set.


Give someone special a night at the Vanguard. Available for purchase online from our store.

Alive at the Vanguard
Pix from LGs book

Alive at the Village Vanguard: My Life In and Out of Jazz Time by Lorraine Gordon.

Here's what others are saying:

Lorraine Gordon has not only known everybody in jazz, but just about everybody else as well. This book is a must-read for all who love our city's roar, its music and its history.
-Ahmet Ertegun, Chairman, Atlantic Records.

She's beautiful, hilarious, ornery, out-spoken, sometimes outrageous, honest to a fault, endlessly quotable and simply the living spirit of jazz.
-Bruce Lundvall, Blue Note Records.

She's maintained the integrity of the Vanguard as a room where musicians play. It's a great feat, especially in our time, when integrity is a curse word and selling out a religion in our country. And it will be viewed that way, as a very great achievement not just for jazz but for our times.
-Wynton Marsalis

Lorraine Gordon is why the Village Vanguard is what it is, and why it is.
-Bill Frisell
