On Tuesday, March 17th at 9pm, WBGO and NPR Music are presenting saxophonist David Sanchez for our next installment of Live at the Village Vanguard. Since it's so rare to see a jazz musician get wide exposure, I thought I'd share this installment of City Stories, a series of ads for Banana Republic. My favorite part?
