Photo Flash: THE BAND'S VISIT Co-Stars Katrina Lenk and George Abud Come to Birdland

The Broadway at Birdland concert series recently welcomed Tony winner Katrina Lenk and her friend and former cast member from The Band's Visit, George Abud in a one-night only concert called "Swung." The performance took place on Monday, March 4.

In a celebration of their musical friendship, Abud and Lenk created an evening of smoky jazz and swinging bebop. Exploring the music of the heart, they dove into sizzling and lush tunes from the likes of Nina Simone, Thelonius Monk, Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, and Rosemary Clooney. Together with a 5-piece band under musical direction by Andrei Strizek, with James Abud on guitar, Alexandra Eckhardt on bass, Sam Sadigursky on reeds and Allison Miller on drums, it was a dreamy, madcap soirée of talk and tunes.
