Alto Madness: Charlie Parker
Centennial Celebration with Charles McPherson and Donald Harrison
NJPAC and Jazz Standard present an online celebration of the legendary Charlie Parker! 100 years after his birth and long after his death at the young age of 34, the jazz master’s legacy is as vital as ever. GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Seth Abramson hosts this conversation with alto sax stars Charles McPherson and Donald Harrison, delving into all things Bird—from the creation of bebop to his influence on their own careers.
This program is free of charge on our Facebook page during the month of April. No RSVPs or codes are needed. Viewers need only to tune in during the specified window of time to watch the films on-demand.
