Jed Levy Quartet at the Birdland Theater

Saxophonist Jed Levy brings a new quartet to the new Birdland Theater, featuring guitarist Phil Robson, drummer Clarence Penn and bassist Peter Slavov. This new ensemble first assembled for a successful tour of Europe in November 2018 under Phil Robson's name, a tour on which Mr. Levy was given featured billing and contributed half of the original music to the group's repertoire. The original music is innovative and contemporary whilst drawing on the vast tradition of jazz, across the whole spectrum of styles. The emphasis is on strong melodies and grooves and the tunes are vehicles for improvisation, allowing each musician to bring their experience and to make them their own.

April 17-20 (Wednesday-Saturday) at 7:00PM

Sheila Jordan at the Birdland Theater

Sheila Jordan's first great influence was Charlie Parker and, indeed, most of her influences have been instrumentalists rather than singers. She made her first recordings in the early 60s; one of these was under her own name, the other was "The Outer View" with George Russell, which featured a famous 10-minute version of "You Are My Sunshine." A 1983 duo set with bassist Harvie Swartz, "Old Time Feeling," comprises several of the standards Jordan regularly features in her live repertoire, while 1990's "Lost And Found" pays tribute to her bebop roots. Both sets display her unique musical trademarks, such as the frequent and unexpected sweeping changes of pitch, which still tend to confound an uninitiated audience. Entirely non-derivative, Jordan is one of only a tiny handful of jazz singers who fully deserve the appellation and for whom no other term will do.

All tickets $30-40, $10 food/drink minimum

April 17-18 (Wednesday-Thursday) at 9:45PM

Victoria Shaw at the Birdland Theater

Hosted by award winning songwriter Victoria Shaw, "Under The Covers" has become a favorite recurring highlight at Birdland, featuring a wide variety of top-selling songwriters and musical acts from across the pop, rock and country worlds, and offering intimate acoustic performances of huge hit songs - along with the little-known stories behind them.

Since 2014 Denise has taken up residence in New York City where she has regular presentations at well-known venues. With no labels or limiting definitions, it is fair to say that Denise Reis communicates her music in a way that transcends any cultural barrier. Her art is a universal language, in which emotion, technique, perfectionism and sophistication meet each other in harmony.
