In 1990, Bill was invited by Club Bird in Yokohama, Japan, to lead a group of New York jazz musicians for a three-month engagement. On returning to the US, Bill added members from AM Sleep to the group, calling it “Bill Ware and the Club Bird All Stars”.
The first recording of the Club Bird All Stars was “Long and Skinny” (Knitting Factory Works – 1993) which received rave reviews.
Now, in 2019, Bill Ware & the Club Bird All Stars are back, featuring new compositions by Bill Ware. The band members are Bill Ware – vibes, Anton Denner – reeds, Matt King – piano, Jay Anderson – bass and Taru Alexander – drums.
