Los Guachos Live at the Village Vanguard

Friends travelling to New York City sometimes ask where they can go to hear good jazz. It depends who’s playing. This week I’d have sent them to the Village Vanguard to hear Los Guachos, the biggish band of youngish Manhattan jazz stars who play compositions by the cultish Argentinian pianist/arranger Guillermo Klein. Fortunately, thanks to the bounty of National Public Radio, here’s a full set of Klein’s band recorded a few nights ago at the Vanguard.
