Birdland is a jazz club started in New York City on December 15, 1949. The original Birdland, which was located at 1678 Broadway, just north of West 52nd Street in Manhattan, was closed in 1965 due to increased rents, but it re-opened for one night in 1979. A revival began in 1986 with the opening of the second nightclub by the same name that is now located in Manhattan's Theater District, not far from the original nightclub's location. The opening night was "A Journey Through Jazz", consisting of various styles of the music up to that point, played by Maxie Kaminsky, Hot Lips Page, Lester Young, Charlie Parker, Stan Getz, and Lennie Tristano. The neon sign at the front of the club read, "Birdland, Jazz Corner of the World". In 1996, Valenti moved the club to West 44th Street, west of Eighth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan where it features a full weekly schedule of performers. All the tracks in this mix were recorded live at Birdland. Picture: www.aht1985.com www.nessradio.com

That was just beautiful my friend, I loved every selection, the flow and mood. Thanks so much for introducing me to this wonderful music.

You never fail to satisfy that itch, that craving for something splendid in the words that music speaks in the tones of proper Jazz music. Always , always, the finest selections, the finest cuts, and finer, deeper grooves of the record. Incomparable.
