Dave Brubeck Charlie Parker Centennial Celebrations at Hollywood Bowl
August 26 @ 8:00 am - 10:30 pm PDT
The Bowl celebrates the 100th birthday of two treasured legends in jazz history.
While the otherworldly complexity, inventiveness, and speed of Charlie Parker’s playing had fundamentally changed the way generations of jazz players approached the saxophone, he always wanted to record an album with an orchestra.
Alongside John Beasley’s four-time-Grammy-nominated big band MONK’estra, as well as a string section, John Beasley and Magnus Lindgren present freshly rearranged takes on Parker’s classics – proving the man they called Bird is still changing how we think about jazz.
