Charlie Parker Birthday Celebration

Charlie Parker Birthday CelebrationCharlie Parker Birthday Celebration Featuring: Vincent Herring, Greg Osby (alto saxes) Eric Alexander (tenor sax, 8/30-9/1) Helen Sung (piano) Lonnie Plaxico (bass) Billy Drummond (drums) +Special Guest Sheila Jordan (vocals, 9/2-3) 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 including Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Bud Powell and Miles Davis. He was the inspiration for Birdland and practically defined its mission as the home for modern jazz in New York City. Since his death in 1955 at age 34 Bird has inspired every subsequent generation of jazz artist and left a rich legacy of distinctive compositions and signature melodic vocabulary that still informs every style of jazz. For his celebration Birdland presents a group of jazz all-stars who can move seamlessly between classic and contemporary Bird-inspired material.
