From the Chicago saloons to the studios of Hollywood (and countless theaters, dives and concert halls in between), Nat “King” Cole burnished a legacy of more than 150 Billboard-charting singles while selling more than 50 million records. He, in fact, topped the very first Billboard popular albums chart. He shared that music, while inspiring America, as the first-ever black entertainer to host a variety series. Cole’s illustrious catalog of sensations includes “Unforgettable,” “The Christmas Song,” “L-O-V-E,” “Straighten Up & Fly Right,” “When I Fall in Love,” “Mona Lisa,” “Stardust” and “Nature Boy.” Cole’s personal and professional achievements were unparalleled. Many of those triumphs remain unsurpassed. Forever altering the course of music, entertainment and the world, tonight we celebrate an icon whose star will never fade. Celebrating… a century of piano virtuosity and uniquely lush vocal timber. Celebrating… a century of trailblazing success as a pioneer of pop music. Celebrating… Nat “King” Cole, starring vocalist Jordan von Haslow.

Long before Carole King became a chart-topping music legend, she was Carol Klein, a girl from Brooklyn. Beloved for penning such iconic pop classics as “You’ve Got a Friend” and “I Feel the Earth Move,” she fought her way into the record business as a teenager and ultimately flourished, writing hits for some of the biggest acts in rock ‘n’ roll. But it wasn’t until her personal life began to crack that she finally found her true voice. Beautiful is the inspiring true story of King’s remarkable rise to stardom, from part of a hit songwriting team with her husband Gerry Goffin, to her relationship with fellow writers and best friends Cynthia Weil and Barry Mann, to becoming one of the most successful solo acts in popular music history. It’s no surprise that Beautiful — The Carole King Musical won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album of 2015. See this unforgettable show at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in New York City.
Named after its first regular headliner, Charlie “Yardbird” Parker, Birdland first feathered its nest on Broadway in 1949, and has since become synonymous with New York jazz. Count Basie and his band made the club their home, as did Coltrane, Monk, Dizzy, Miles and more. Now on West 44th in Midtown Manhattan, Birdland’s still going strong, and is called “close to perfection for serious fans and musicians” by The New York Times, with its awesome sight lines, pristine acoustics and an award-winning Cajun-American menu. You’ll find the most famous names in jazz on its stage, as well as exciting up-and-comers every night of the week.
