The Michel Petrucciani Trio

Live At The Village Vanguard


Release date: 1 January, 2002

Pianist GERALD CLAYTON makes his Blue Note debut with Happening: Live at the Village Vanguard, a fitting name for what this dynamic quintet with alto saxophonist LOGAN RICHARDSON, tenor saxophonist WALTER SMITH III, bassist JOE SANDERS, and drummer MARCUS GILMORE captures on stage any given night. Recorded at the legendary NYC jazz club, a longtime sacred space for the music, the band conjures the spirits of the room on this set of Clayton originals and standards.
