In the fall of 2018, pianist and bandleader Jon Batiste played a six-night residency at the historic Village Vanguard in downtown New York City. On August 2, Batiste will release selections from those nights entitled Anatomy of Angels: Live at the Village Vanguard via Verve Records.

The selection for Anatomy of Angels is comprised mostly of Batiste's own compositions, which range from bluesy ("Dusk Train To Doha") to Coltrane-esque explorations (the titular track "Anatomy of Angels" and "Creative.") In addition to his own works, Rachael Price from Lake Street Dive joins him for Ray Noble's "The Very Thought Of You." Batiste also arranged on one of the most famous works of his idol Thelonious Monk, "'Round Midnight."
