    WBGO presented pianist Kenny Barron's quintet live from New York's Village Vanguard nightclub on April 5 at 8:30 p.m. You can watch video from this broadcast here.

    Barron was joined by Vincent Herring on alto saxophone, Brandon Lee on trumpet, Kiyoshi Kitagawa on bass and Lee Pearson on drums. The group celebrated Barron's 70th birthday, as well as the legacy of pianist Mulgrew Miller, a close friend and collaborator of Barron's, who passed away the previous week. Enjoy!
