Charlie Parker Jazz Festival – free in NYC

August 27, 2023


A free event of all-star musicians led by alto saxophonist and bandleader Charles McPherson, who famously performed with Charles Mingus in the ‘60s and recorded ensemble renditions of Charlie Parker works for the soundtrack to the 1988 Parker biopic Bird. He performs here with Terell Stafford, a veteran of his quintet and a gifted, versatile trumpet player with an adventurous expression of lyricism.
