• Live From The Village Vanguard: Jeff Ballard Fairgrounds

    April 10, 2013. Posted by Tim Wilkins.

    WBGO presented drummer Jeff Ballard's "Fairgrounds" project live from the Village Vanguard on Wednesday, April 10 at 8:30 p.m. You can watch video, and review the live chat from this event, on this page.

    Like WBGO's other live broadcasts, these shows live on in our video archive and at NPRmusic.org.

    Ballard was joined by Eddie Henderson on trumpet, Kevin Hays on piano, Jeff Parker on guitar and Larry Grenadier on bass. The group's performance and broadcast were originally scheduled for last October, but were canceled because of Hurricane Sandy.

    If you like what you hear, WBGO's The Jazz Bee regularly features recordings by Ballard and his bandmates. Enjoy!
