Tommy Igoe and the Birdland Big Band Play the Jorgensen in Storrs on Jan. 31
Featuring the Birdland Big Band (pictured) and its director, Tommy Igoe, Live At Birdland sends audiences back to the heyday(s) of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonius Monk, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Stan Getz, and Lester Young — artists who once thought of the famed NYC establishment as their second home. Tickets to the Storrs cabaret-style show run from $32-$47 and can be purchased at jorgensen.uconn.edu.
