The Birdland All-Stars have been thrilling audiences at the “Jazz Corner of the World” for the last ten years. This dynamic new ensemble, straight from the jazz mecca of Manhattan, provides an unforgettable musical event that goes far beyond the traditional, setting the standard for the 21st-century jazz orchestra. Returning to the road for the first time in five years, The Birdland All-Stars have created new arrangements featuring the music of David Bowie, The Police and more, as well as fresh treatments of iconic compositions by Charlie Parker, Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock. All this led by one of the world’s greatest drummers: music wonder Tommy Igoe.
