Jazz fans get the inside story of New York's legendary club. At age 83, Lorrai ne Gordon is a jazz icon who has lived more than a few lives: downtown bohemia n, uptown grande dame, music business pioneer, wife, lover, mother, and finall y - at a point when most women her age were just settling into grandmotherhood - owner of the most famous jazz club in the world, the Village Vanguard. The t rajectory of her journey has been remarkable. The details are a Jackson Polloc k-like swirl of fierce colors shot through with larger-than-life creative figu res: not just jazz figures but luminaries from every point on the political, s ocial and entertainment spectrum: from Mike Nichols, Elaine May, Miles Davis a nd Thelonious Monk to Lenny Bruce, Norman Mailer and Barbra Streisand. * The l egendary Village Vanguard has been an international jazz mecca since 1935. Acc ording to New York Magazine, A musician hasn't truly arrived in the jazz world until he's played at the 'Carnegie Hall of Cool,' the Village Vanguard. * Ther e have been over 100 Live at the Village Vanguard recordings by premier artist s from John Coltrane to Wynton Marsalis.
