Village Vanguard

BABETTE: Well, see, Morey just got a call to play a gig at the Village Vanguard tonight so we got to go to New York.

Village Vanguard is a jazz club on Seventh Avenue South in Greenwich Village. It opened in 1935 and at first featured many forms of music, such as folk and beat poetry. It became focused solely on jazz in 1957. Some of the big stars who have played at the Village Vanguard include Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, and Sonny Rollins.

It’s an internationally renowned club, so it’s a demonstration of Morey’s recognised talent that he was chosen to play here (even though it seems a bit last minute).
