The Royal Roost was a jazz club located at 1580 Broadway in New York City. Royal Roost was one of the key venues in the development of bebop and modern jazz. Musical Director Bob Belden (saxophonist) is a multi-Grammy Award-winning composer and arranger, who has orchestrated jazz treatments of Puccini’s opera Turandot as well as the music of The Beatles, Sting and Prince. He produced and arranged a pair of tributes to trumpeter Miles Davis—Miles from India and Miles Español: New Sketches From Spain.
