The Birdland All-Stars featuring Tommy Igoe

  • Stewart Theatre 2610 Cates Avenue Raleigh, NC, 27606 United States (map)

Remember when jazz clubs were smoky places you stumbled upon by following your ears down a dim staircase? Birdland, known as “The Jazz Corner of the World,” is one of those clubs. And the Birdland All-Stars, led by the great jazz drummer Tommy Igoe, have been thrilling audiences for a decade from their New York haunt. Returning to the road for the first time in five years, the Birdland All-Stars have created new arrangements featuring the music of David Bowie, The Police, and Steely Dan, as well as fresh treatments of iconic compositions by Charlie Parker, Chick Corea, and Herbie Hancock. Bandleader Tommy Igoe has been featured on multiple Grammy award-winning recordings and recently won the coveted 2014 Modern Drummer Reader’s Poll award for “Best Jazz Drummer.”
