Birdland club

First, the picture — from the Bettmann / Corbis archives: 
the original jazz club Birdland, perhaps on opening night in 1949.  
From the left, Max Kaminsky on trumpet, Lester Young on tenor saxophone, a nearly-hidden George Wettling on drums, Hot Lips Page on trumpet, Charlie Parker on alto saxophone, Lennie Tristano on piano.
