Todd Londagon's return to Birdland marks another unforgettable night along with his quintet, The Todd Londagin Five. Having showcased his 18-piece big band on the legendary Birdland stage twice before, as well as being a semi-regular at Jim Caruso's Cast Party, Londagin is raring to go in bringing back the nostalgia of music's greatest decades.
the Todd Londagin Five are Londagin on trombone and vocals, PETE SMITH on guitar, MATTHEW RAY on piano, DAVID BERGER on drums and JENNIFER VINCENT on bass. The quintet presents a mix of the American Songbook and New Orleans jazz along with original songs and new arrangements of the more daring standards. Expect plenty of hat-tipping to Nat King Cole and a couple of vaudeville surprises thrown in for fun.
