It was our first time at Birdland (I went with a friend) and we both loved the band. Excellent music. Nice space; nice vibe; almost as good as going to the BB King Restaurant, but we felt that the mixed drinks were too expensive. We did not eat.

the masters were extraordinary;the intertwining of their passion and dynamic sophistication had the effect of a gospel choir in a library reading room

the music was great but drinks overpriced. If I'm going to pay $14 for a martini I want a strong drink, use good vodka and skip the juice.

Fantastic show. Frank Wess is amazing and his Quintet is, too.

Birdland is a legendary jazz venue and justly so.

This was my first time there and I will be going back. The staff were friendly, professional and gracious.

Great show ! Cyrille is a fine young artist. Wished she sing more in French. The side men were also impressive. Nice Martini too.
