“an essential Beat stop location”

The Village Vanguard is a jazz club located at Greenwich Village New York City. The club was opened on February 22, 1935, by Max Gordon. At first, it also featured other forms of music such as folk music and beat poetry, but it switched to an all-jazz format in 1957. "The essential Beat stop is the time-warp basement venue of the Village Vanguard in Greenwich Village, open since 1935. Kerouac performed jazz poetry here in the 1960s, not long after he lamented that ‘jazz is killing itself here’ because of its high cover prices. It’s hard to complain about the $25 admission fee these days when you can encounter real bebop survivors like 82-year-old jazz pianist Barry Harris, who did a two-week stint here last summer."
