Featuring the finest musicians in New York, the Birdland All-Stars have been thrilling audiences at “The Jazz Corner of the World” for the last 10 years. Returning to the road for the first time in five years, the Birdland All-Stars, led by Tommy Igoe, have created new arrangements featuring the music of David Bowie, The Police, and Steely Dan, as well as fresh treatments of iconic compositions by Charlie Parker, Chick Corea, and Herbie Hancock.
The Birdland All-Stars is a project born out of the legendary Birdland Jazz Club by Tommy Igoe, who is also the creator for The Birdland Big Band, which performs weekly as the club’s orchestra in residence. All-Stars brings the live Birdland Big Band experience to communities across America—with The Art of Jazz twist.
The multimedia presentation The Art of Jazz brings the All-Stars’ live performance to a whole new level, as accomplished visual artists create paintings in real time which are inspired by the music as it is experienced by the audience.
