Charlie "Bird" Parker, THE innovator of bebop, speaks to all jazz musicians and music aficionados. His pioneering explorations on alto saxophone, playing complex lines over challenging harmonies, resonate to this day. Our special guest for this tribute is modern sax master Charles McPherson, famous for his work with Clint Eastwood on the Parker biopic, Bird.
