Address 1678 Broadway New York, NY 10019, USA

A reference jazz club, Birdland opened its doors in 1949 at 1678 Broadway, propelled by the ambition of Irving and Morris Levy, the two brothers who founded the Roulette Records label…

Named after Charlie Parker, the Birdland welcomed the master in 1950, but also several stars of the discipline such as Count Basie, Miles Davis, Bill Evans, John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespied, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Thelonieux Monk, Charles Mingus, Stan Getz, Sammy David Jr. or Chet Baker. Many stars took advantage of their performance at Birdland to release a live album. Unfortunately, in 1965, the club at 1678 Broadway had to close its doors due to high rent. It was only 21 years later, in 1986, that it was reborn, at 315 W 44th Street, one block west of Times Square. The big names in music quickly appropriated these new premises in order to continue to write a legend still alive.
