Live At Birdland Tickets
The Live at Birdland album is a blend of studio and live tracks that were recorded at the Birdland club by the jazz musician, John Coltrane in 1963. After the album was released, more than one million fans went to hear the creation of this brilliant jazz legend who has explored new avenues and horizons to come up with this wonderful creation. The album songs include Afro Blue, I Want to Talk About You, The Promise, Alabama, Your Lady and Vilia. The first three singles are live recordings while the latter are studio tracks.
The song I Want to Talk About You was initially released as part of Coltrane’s 1958 album, Soultrane which carries some of the finest sax work you would not have heard before. John has worked really hard to refine this song without hurting the actual melody. The highlight of the song, Afro Blue is the powerful drumming by Elvin Jones. The talented guy sets high standards for other band members prompting them to perform at the same level. The song Alabama stands out because it has been adapted from Martin Luther King speech. It is particularly dedicated to the four children who died during the church bombings by white supremacists. Some may find it a laid back number while others could find it deeply spiritual.
The highlight of the Live at Birdland musical is The Birdland Big Band that has surpassed the traditional ballad trend and reached new heights in the twenty first century jazz orchestra. Directed by Tommy Igoe, the new jazz ensemble is composed of all the top notch musicians and drummers that have become a prime attraction for the New Yorkers.
