Spencer Day Makes Birdland Debut

In the three years since the release of his debut recording "Vagabond," Spencer Day has spent some time in the uncomfortable places where light and clarity disappear into the mysteries of uncertainty. He survived the journey, and he's come back with a story to tell, and a wiser perspective about himself and the world. That story ­ rooted in his own experience, yet filled with revelations and truths that are universal to any human being who has ever put his or her heart at risk, ­ is captured in the 13 tracks of "The Mystery of You," his new album, released March 12th, 2013 on Concord Records. Spencer has taken "The Mystery of You" and turned it into a Storyteller meets cabaret experience for his audience.

Jim Caruso's Cast Party is a wildly popular weekly soiree that brings a sprinkling of Broadway glitz and urbane wit to the legendary Birdland in New York City every Monday night. It's a cool cabaret night-out enlivened by a hilariously impromptu variety show. Showbiz superstars hit the stage alongside up-and-comers, serving up jaw-dropping music and general razzle-dazzle

Steve Kuhn Trio

Buster Williams (Bass), Joey Baron (Drums)

After making his mark as a sideman with John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Chet Baker, Art Farmer and others, pianist Steve Kuhn moved beyond the powerful influence of Bill Evans to become a unique stylist with an incredible technique, sense of dynamics and lyricism. Over the last ten years Steve has released several critically acclaimed CDs marking a well-deserved career renaissance.

David Ostwald's Louis Armstrong Centennial Band

"Tubaist David Ostwald's fabulous early-swing band is about as good as it gets. Known for their energetic treatment of Louis Armstrong's repertoire, these cats like to entertain as much as they like to swing." (Time Out NY)

The Birdland Big Band

Every Friday the "BBB" roars into action playing a thrilling and original mix of jazz, funk, Brazilian, Latin and world music for sold-out audiences. Featured weekly guest artists drop-in from television bands (David Letterman, Saturday Night Live) and pop music touring bands (Rob Thomas, Rod Stewart). Come see for yourself why Time Out New York called the BBB, "a completely unique experience... there isn't another band like this anywhere," and yelp.comproclaims, "if you hear one band in NYC make sure this is it... and prepare to be blown away!"
