Birdland, 315 West 44 Street, New York, New York
SAFE was a proud recipient of a performance by Jazz for Peace in a Benefit Concert at the world famous Jazz Club Birdland in Manhattan.
Rick DellaRatta and his trio performed to a rapt audience a mix of original compositions, Brazilian classics, and favorites like “Autumn Leaves”. There was even a refreshing rendition of “If I only had a brain” from The Wizard of Oz.
The evening ended with dinner at Zuni Restaurant, where a special meal was prepared just for us. Over salmon, chicken and pasta, we had a chance to discuss the issues that brought us altogether in the first place—preservation of cultural heritage.
We thank Jazz for Peace and our sponsors:
- Archaeology Magazine
- The Mystic Masala
- Zuni Restaurant
- Tasti-d-lite/The Cocoa Bar
- Max & Mina’s Homemade Ice Cream
