Birdland, the famous New York jazz club founded in 1949, was where Count Basie and his big band made their headquarters, and where many jazz legends made a regular home Charlie Parker (for whom the club was named), Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie and more. Now, the ambience of this venerable club comes to City Opera House, featuring New York’s finest musicians and directed by one of the world’s greatest drummers, Tommy Igoe. Live at Birdland will feature iconic Charlie Parker compositions and more. “Tommy Igoe’s drumming defies the laws of physics and his band sets the new standard for what a big band can be in the 21st-century.”- The International Jazz Herald
