Thinking of Lorraine Gordon, I remembered I had a show "Live at the Village Vanguard" in 2014 and wanted to do another episode or 2 with the same theme. This week: Paul Motian recorded live at the Village Vanguard 1961-2010. Readings from the Motian autobiography about early days at the Vanguard. Max Gordon wanted the trio to be the Vanguard house band.
