A Swinging Birdland Christmas just concluded it’s eighth year at the legendary club and the tradition of inspired vocal arrangements, harmonies, and rhythms by Klea Blackhurst, Jim Caruso, and Billy Stritch were applied to a great new holiday song list. There were performances of “Christmas Waltz, Kay Thompson’s “Holiday Season,” “Sleigh Ride,” “I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm,” “Snow”, and “It Happened in Sun Valley” among other favorites, The trio was joined by Steve Doyle on bass and Daniel Glass on drums. If you didn’t get in this Christmas buy your ticket for next years musical gift early, sorry no after Christmas sales of this show.
