My View: Christmas Comes Early To Birdland – A Great Musical Present

My View: Christmas Comes Early To Birdland – A Great Musical Present

You might think of Bing, Andy, or Perry when you think Christmas Music Specials, but for the past seven years it’s been Billy, Jim, and Klea with their extraordinary sophisticated harmonies of swinging Holiday music at Birdland.   This year it’s only on the Birdland schedule for 3 nights because the trio’s sleigh took them to folks on the other side of the country who also wanted to see the show.   You can still get this present at Birdland  on Sat. 12/24 and Sunday 12/25.  A Swingin’ Birdland Christmas with Billy Stritch, Jim Caruso & Klea Blackhurst

Check out the video to hear Bing sing with Billy, Jim, and Klea
