Description

Born August 29th, 1920, Charlie "Bird" Parker was one of the most influential and iconic artists in jazz history. As the central figure in the development of bebop in the 1940s Bird was a legendary figure in his own lifetime and was idolized by those who worked with him. For his birthday celebration Birdland presents a group of jazz all-stars who move seamlessly between classic and contemporary Bird-inspired material, including Brandon Lee (trumpet), Donald Vega (piano), Ricky Rodriguez (bass), Chris Smith (drums), and led by David DeJesus (alto sax).
