On Sun., Jan. 24, at 7 p.m., a star-studded virtual telethon will kick off to save Birdland, the legendary N.Y. ''Jazz Corner of the World.''

Owner Gianni Valenti and entertainer/emcee Jim Caruso are coordinating a lineup of notable names that includes: former Pres. Bill Clinton, Chita Rivera, Leslie Odom Jr., Wynton Marsalis, Norm Lewis, Diana Krall, Mandy Patinkin, Bebe Neuwirth, Billy Stritch and John Pizzarelli.

(On a personal note, I produced 3 ''Leading Men'' concerts for Broadway Cares there, and Gianni & Jim were always the most hospitable hosts.)
