Birdland Theater is proud to announce that “New York: Big City Songbook,” will be on the stage for three very special nights, Sundays, October 28, November 4 and November 25, with shows at 7:30pm. The show stars Birdland favorites Klea Blackhurst, LaTanya Hall and Nicolas King.
“A triumph” raves The New York Times. Why have so many songwriters been compelled to write about New York? What is it about this city that fuels an endless supply of stories? This show offers a kaleidoscopic vision of life in the city, from the inspiring and romantic to the aggravating and the quirky. New York is a fabulous character, and we have this great cast of real New Yorkers (meaning they come from everywhere) to take us on this entertaining and exhilarating musical ride in search of what it really means to be a New Yorker.

Andy Milne collaborates with vocalist La Tanya Hall, bassist Noah Garabedian and drummer David Jimenez in a celebration of the life of Sarah Vaughan. Hall, who has been a distinguished support to artists as varied as Harry Belafonte to Steely Dan, is an ideal vocalist to celebrate this icon of American Music. Together they chronicle Sarah Vaughan’s unique path that touched everything from Pop & Jazz to Bossa Nova and Opera. La Tanya Hall’s rich vocal range and dynamic stage presence make her uniquely qualified to commemorate the “Sublime Sarah”. Hall and Milne have been performing increasingly throughout the US and are currently preparing a new recording.
The first set will consist of a concert performance of “To Sarah, with Love”-A Celebration Of the life & music of Sarah Vaughn, one of the all time great female vocalists of American jazz & popular standards.
