Terazza Big Band

June 12 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for the Terazza Big Band performing at Birdland on June 12th at 5:30pm!

The Terraza Big Band is an 18-piece ensemble based in Queens, NY, and performing monthly at Terraza 7 in Jackson Heights. Led by co-directors Michael Thomas (saxophone, composer) and Edward Perez (bass, composer), this group performs a repertoire of original music penned by its leaders and described by the New York Times as “soaring, self-propelling original compositions”. The Terraza Big Band features many of New York’s most in-demand jazz musicians and can be heard at venues throughout New York City in addition to its monthly residency at Terraza 7, where the ensemble “injects a liberated, interactive atmosphere into the bar…the audience was fully onboard, but the ideas were entirely new” (New York Times). The band’s debut album, One Day Wonder, was released in May 2019 and received a Grammy nomination that year in the category of “Best Large Jazz Ensemble”. This recording was hailed by Jazz Times as being “the sort of debut that should make big-band fans not only take notice but hunger for more.”
