At New York's Village Vanguard

news13.10 BillyPeterson-BillCarrothers-DaveKing TrioLast year, Billy Peterson made the album “I’ve Been Ringing You” together with drummer Dave King and pianist Bill Carrothers, which was recorded at a Minnesotan church. The full-length album shows a deep fondness for the jazz tradition, it investigates moody standards and American Songbook ballads, mostly slow and medium-tempo ballads, in rough-hewn textures. Critics just love it.

Now the New York's Village Vanguard, one of the world's preeminent jazz venues, brought the trio in for a full week in September. WBGO and NPR Music present a live video webcast and a radio broadcast of the Trio on Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 8:30 p.m. ET. To listen, click here.
