Jazz legend Charlie Parker would be 100 this year. A new box set from Craft Recordings celebrates his profound impact on bebop and more.
He incorporated Miles, Duke, and others into his glorious paean to the human spirit. Take 40 minutes to really listen.
He’s one of the most talked-about tenor saxophonists and his album “Love Stone” takes classic songs in directions not seen since the days of Sonny Rollins. Obviously, he wasn’t content to just stick to the script!
