My View: Birdland – The Beautiful Corner Of The World

My View: Birdland – The Beautiful Corner Of The World

If you walked into Birdland last night, (Charlie Parker’s anointed “Jazz Corner Of The World”) you saw and heard beauty in every corner of the legendary nightclub. First,the beauty of Barbara Carroll’s piano, recording an album “live” . Then a show by Ann Hampton Callaway, one of the most beautiful people on the planet. The joyousness and euphoria one gets from hearing beautiful music was felt by everyone as Ann, accompanied by her trio and the artistry of pianist Ted Rosenthal created some of the most beautiful sounds one can hear. It was aptly titled “But Beautiful”, and to paraphrase the song’s opening line, “love was cheerful and was sad, it was a good thing, never bad, but unforgettably beautiful. If that wasn’t enough beauty, we also had Marilyn Maye, Sunny Sessa, Eda Sorokoff, Deborah Lynn, Kari Strand, Ron Abel, Chuck Steffan, Mark Sendroff, Gianni Valenti, and many other beautiful people in the room to share the evening with.
