Birdland welcomes back the Eyal Vilner Big Band. Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, saxophonist/clarinetist/flutist-arranger/composer/conductor Eyal Vilner moved to New York in 2007 and graduated from the prestigious New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in 2009. Since its inception in 2008, The Eyal Vilner Big Band has collaborated with some of the top jazz legends of our time, including NEA Jazz Masters Frank Wess, Jimmy Heath and Jimmy Owens, as well as young stellar vocalists: Charenée Wade, Brianna Thomas and Charles Turner. The big band performs Vilner's new arrangements of jazz standards as well as his original compositions. The big band's first two albums, Introducing the Eyal Vilner Big Band and Almost Sunrise, received rave reviews and stood strong on the American and Canadian Jazz Radio Charts.
