Yes, it's a commercial for beer...What else do they try to sell during football games? But check out the great set location. It's the Village Vanguard! Right after we finished our December broadcast of the Cedar Walton Trio, a crew of seventeen people, not including actors, took over the club and created this thirty second ad with John Turturro.

Next week, Cedar Walton's trio wraps up our 2008 concert series from the Village Vanguard. Don't worry, there's more to come:
The series kicks off 2009 with a performance from guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel on January 7, which will be available for download as a podcast. Grammy© winning trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard brings his quintet to the Vanguard in February along with special guests, and Grammy© nominated saxophonist David Sanchez follows in March with his quartet performing material from Sanchez's recent recording, Cultural Survival. In April, trumpeter and composer Tom Harrell and his quintet will play music from an upcoming release, Prana's Dance.
