They sure as hell don't belong to me. The song Birdland is by Patti Smith, the lyrics are reprinted without permission, so if she calls, I ain't home.
It was warm, in Birdland, not really necessary, since this was Los Angeles and it was nearly summer.
The bar was called Birdland, as had the place it came from.

Of equal interest are the smaller-scale Songs and Sonnets from Shakespeare from George Shearing and Rutter's Birthday Madrigals, written by Rutter for Shearing's 75th birthday.

 Blogcritics.org: CD Review: String Cheese Incident - One Step Closer
Sure, it's funny to think that the same group who bluegrassed up Weather Report's "Birdland" can turn around and write "The Big Compromise", a lilting song that wouldn't be out of place on a John Hiatt record.
String Cheese takes a decidedly jazz-like approach, using the songs as source material for the improvisations to follow.
"...And starting this summer, when we play the new songs live, a 3-minute song may turn into a 6-minute song or longer.

 Remembering the Mambo King
Santana's 1970 rendition of Puente's "Oye Como Va," a song the Mambo King penned in 1962, became an international hit and provoked a rift between Puente and Santana until the former started earning royalties for the song.
In the 1980s and 90s, Puente's band, renamed the Latin Jazz Ensemble, gained worldwide notoriety performing in Latin America, Asia, and Europe, winning five Grammy awards, most recently in February 2000 for the recording Mambo Birdland.
Puente is often credited with making Latin music known to the world, but his ambassadorship started at the local level, bringing Latin rhythms from clubs uptown (such as the Park Palace on 110th and 5th Avenue) to the Palladium and its initially white clientele." The Palladium was a phenomenon," Puente said of the era.

 Luis Miranda Latin Jazz Percussionist Homepage
Machito's band, aside from being the first band to play Latin jazz, was also the first Latin band to play the famous Apollo Theater and Birdland Jazz Club in New York.
We recorded a couple of albums, and did a National Tour, which included a show at the famous Birdland Jazz Club in New York, a stint in Las Vegas, and back to Hollywood to play at Zardi's.
Note: Mario Bauzá always referred to it as Afro-Cuban jazz and would be outraged if anyone called it Latin jazz in his presence.) Naturally, with Dizzy's band, Chano went on to record the song "Manteca" which was a big hit with the American public.

 Mockingbird Setlists File
In our opinion, Phish is a jamming band and, by their nature, several songs at a show will jam out in some way and any song is subject to jam on any night.
Examples include the "Birdland" jam in the July 21, 1997, "David Bowie" and the "Couldn't Stand the Weather" jam in the December 3, 1997, "Drowned." Usually, these types of jams are mentioned in the show notes, and not the setlists themselves.
Similarly, it is not noted when versions of "Foreplay/Longtime" are performed acoustic, because almost all versions of this song have been performed that way.

 Charles McPherson Quartet
Tonight’s second set at Birdland with the seasoned saxophonist, Charles McPherson, began with a song about a Marionette, and Williams presented a lovely bass solo joined by Chuck’s (son of the Bandleader) edgy and energetic percussion on the side of his drums.
There was no melody here, but rather magnetic momentum, as McPherson held the attention of his Birdland fans.
Seventh Dimension brought McPherson’s sensational sax to a moody dissonance, esoteric and electric, and Mathews and Williams accompanied in reverence.

 Venus: Patti Smith
And, like they have for nearly three decades, guitarist Lenny Kaye and drummer Jay Dee Daugherty compliment Smith's hungry vocals, particularly on the gnarling "Dead City." One might sense closure is near on "Birdland" and "Boy Cries Wolf," but the evocative prowling of the brand-new song "Higher Learning" lingers.
Patti Smith is an individual with a raw energy that's infectious and undeniable.
From the sultry bravado of "Dancing Barefoot" to the lilting swagger of "Because the Night," Smith was an original spirit.

 CMT.com : Van McCoy : Biography
Born Van Allen Clinton McCoy on January 6, 1940, in Washington, D.C., as a child he sang with the Metropolitan Baptist Church choir, and by the age of 12 he was writing his own songs in addition to performing in local amateur shows alongside older brother, Norman Jr.
Serving as their lead vocalist, writer, and music director, Van masterminded the Starlighters' 1956 debut single, "The Birdland," a novelty dance record that generated enough local interest to earn them an invitation to tour the East Coast in support of drummer Vi Burnsides.
Expectations were similarly low for 1975's Avco label effort Disco Baby -- McCoy authored "The Hustle" after hearing about the dance from New York City disc jockey David Todd, and the song, written in under an hour, was the last track recorded for the album.

Siegel began A Capella, and then the entire band slowly entered the song, in a loosely knit group, as Ms.
Siegel appeared, Moody entertained the crowd with his wild saxophone and his often, humorous asides and jokes that were spliced into his set to keep the mood lighthearted.
When Moody switches to flute, one forgets about the sax, as the range and renditions are so inspiring that we are drawn into the moment.

Peter Erskine, and Omar Hakim, but the band spirit prevailed over the course of 17 albums, including the ground-breaking album Black Market and the massively popular Heavy Weather, with Zawinul’s infectious song "Birdland".
Few keyboardists in jazz history have matched the creative intensity of Joe Zawinul, who started out on accordion in his native Austria and has become one of the most important synthesists in jazz.
He is busy creating new sounds, textures and grooves with The Zawinul Syndicate, on stage and in the studio, and creating a personal variation of jazz beyond category.

 Splendid Magazine reviews The Yardbirds: Birdland
Thoughtfully, the new Yardbirds dedicate Birdland to their original singer, the late Keith Relf (they also have an obligatory tribute song), though it's hard to see how being replaced by a Goo Goo Doll constitutes much of a memorial.
Thankfully, they are the only two original Yardbirds on this reunion album, on which they modernize "Over Under Sideways Down", "Happenings Ten Years Time Ago", "Shapes of Things" and "For Your Love", which "features" a lead vocal from the Goo Goo Dolls' John Rzeznik.
If you're like us, when you think of the Yardbirds, you don't think of any of their hack journeyman guitarists (Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page)-- you think instead of their ace rhythm guitarist, Chris Dreja, and their efficient drummer Jim McCarty.

Mutual admiration definitely formed when this track was recorded at Birdland Studios in Melbourne, and both acts hope to work together in the future.
An explosive track, recorded in Melbourne, it combines the intensity of Richard Frankland's spoken word and fierce political commitment with the power of Magic Dirt's musical soundscape.

The Madison dance was already alive and thriving when Al Brown became aware of it and saw an opportunity to record a song to fit the dance.

Madison contests sprang up in all the clubs but the outstanding contest was promoted by the Merry Makers club at Valley Dale which drew the largest crowd ever assembled at the Dale.
