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.

Great venue with good food and wine. The wait staff was very kind and the music was phenomenal. They don't rush you out when it ends, which was nice as we had a bit more wine left and the environment was truly spectacular with the lighting. I have...continued

I have become a recent fan of Kenny Barron from his version of 'Alter Ego'. I had the pleasure of listening to some of his older stuff which was also very good. I loved the show and thought the quartet worked well together.

I have to admit that the venue was larger than I thought it would be, but still small enough to be comfortably cosy. I went with my husband and we shared a small table towards the back. The band was good, and so was the vocalist. I was glad that...continued

I liked it. The music was good. The only drawback was that it only lasted an hour and 20 minutes.
