A quartet of master musicians and a programme of jazz classics. “Live At Birdland" presents the finest moments from two inspired nights at New York's legendary club, as Konitz, Mehldau, Haden and Motian play “Lover Man," “Lullaby Of Birdland," “Solar," “I Fall In Love Too Easily," “You Stepped Out Of A Dream" and “Oleo" with freedom, tenderness, and a love of melody that only jazz's greatest improvisers can propose.

You should be able to find this album in fine record stores but for your convenience.
