The Village Vanguard, the most storied of clubs, has observed this practice since 1966, when a nascent large ensemble called together by trumpeter Thad Jones and drummer Mel Lewis was booked for three Mondays in February. Now called the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, the Grammy-winning 16-piece band upholds Jones and Lewis' precepts of swinging boldly and arranging deftly to a sold-out crowd weekly.
The Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Jazz Orchestra was a jazz big band formed by trumpeter Thad Jones and drummer Mel Lewis in New York in 1965. The band performed for twelve years in its original incarnation, including a 1972 tour of the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War. The band won a Grammy Award for the album Live in Munich and in 2009 for the album Monday Night Live at the Village Vanguard. Beginning in February 1966, the band played every Monday night at the Village Vanguard The Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra was arguably the most influential big band since the swing era.
It’s dedicated to Dennis Irwin, their longtime bassist, who died of cancer a month later. He does not appear on the album; Phil Palombi does. Much of the music goes back to the mid-’60s, when the band was formed and the main writers were Jones and Bob Brookmeyer. It is a most worthy document, given the band’s longevity, everlasting hipness, respect and home base.
