“. . . a music experience you simply must witness.”—Time Out New York
Founded in NYC in 1949, Birdland frequently featured Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonius Monk, and a host of other jazz greats. Live at Birdland recreates that atmosphere, featuring the Birdland Big Band directed by Tommy Igoe, the show comprises classic jazz pieces as well as new arrangements of pieces by such recognizable artists as Sting, Herbie Hancock, and Lennon/McCartney. Acclaimed music director Tommy Igoe brings the fun of big band music to contemporary America with Live at Birdland.
