Expert Testimony: All That Jazz

ShareThis

The neighborhood music shop might be a fine place to pick up A Love Supreme or Kind of Blue, but let's say you're a bit past that -- you're looking for jazz a little less mainstream (and a lot harder to find) than what might appear on a Starbucks sampler. If you're someone like Lorraine Gordon, owner of the Village Vanguard, you probably hear more great jazz while making dinner than most people hear in a lifetime. Still, when the urge strikes, the woman behind perhaps the world's finest jazz club heads to Jazz Record Center (236 West 26th Street, eighth floor; 675-4480). With about 50,000 titles (mostly LPs), as well as 350 videos and 800 books, JRC is pretty much going to have whatever it is you dig, from the latest Roy Hargrove release to raritieslike Charlie Parker's first commercially produced LP, on sale for $10,000.
