Tonight, WBGO and NPR Music are broadcasting their monthly Live @ The Village Vanguard series. This broadcast will feature saxophonist Greg Osby and his quintet of Terri Lynne Carrington on drums, Nir Felder on guitar, Marc Copland on piano and Joseph Lepore on bass.

It also happens to be Osby’s 50th birthday. If I were to find myself in 2034 celebrating my semicentennial at the Vanguard, I’d probably be feeling pretty good about life.

Tune in at 9 pm to hear Osby in action — as usual, I will be hanging out in the online chat so say hello if you stop by.
