Buy & Sell Vinyl, CDs, DVDs. Browse 150,000 new & used titles
The Village Vanguard is a jazz club, located in New York City, which has been around since 1935, and has featured all the famous artists in jazz. It was founded by Max Gordon and is now run by his wife, Lorraine Gordon. At first it also featured other forms of music such as folk music and beat poetry, but it has been known as the home of live jazz since the Village Vanguard switched to an all jazz policy in 1957.
Princeton Record Exchange appreciates the contribution Village Vanguard provides to the local community and has created the below directions for your convenience. We hope that while you're in Princeton you also take the opportunity to browse our music and movie selection.
