59th street (Florence Gould Hall) heard the sounds usually found on 44th street (Birdland) for a concert in celebration of The Big Apple last night and Broadwayworld was there. Check out the photos below.

Actually this group of the Jazz world's finest musicians were performing the swinging New York Tribute in Birdland at the beginning of the week prior to last night's AIG sponsored private event at the French Imstitute's Florence Gould Hall.

Tedd Firth directed Sherrie Maricle and the Diva Jazz Orchestra in a great Jazz tribute to New York City which captured it's heart, soul, sights and sounds with music and lyrics by Ken Laub and arrangements by Mr. Firth.

The four vocalists who soloed, harmonized, and narrated the extraordinary concert are some of the best Jazz singers in the country. Along with the AIG Private Client Group audience, former New York City Mayor David Dinkins, a Jazz aficionado was swinging to the music.

There were plenty of great new sounds from Clint Holmes, Natalie Douglas, Veronica Swift and Nicolas King in "New York Old Friend" and it just might be traveling to a city near you.
