We couldn’t think of an artist better qualified than Jason Moran to help iconic West Village jazz room the Village Vanguard celebrate its 80th birthday. Moran, a pianist with an uncanny knack for animating history, has curated a fascinating anniversary series, featuring a night of solo piano (Mar 10), an all-Monk evening (Mar 13), collaborations with poets and comedians (Mar 11 and 12, respectively), guest turns from vocalist Alicia Hall Moran and guitarist Bill Frisell (Mar 14), and a rare club appearance from saxist Charles Lloyd's New Quartet (Mar 15), which features Moran on the keys.
