Charlie Parker – 100 years on and still flying high
In 2020, the world celebrates 100 years since the birth of one of the greatest innovators in jazz: alto saxophonist Charlie “Bird” Parker, the founding father of bebop, whose revolutionary influence is felt as strongly today as it was in his all too brief lifetime. In honour of the anniversary, the HKAF presents the world premiere of a programme of radical modern responses to Parker’s music, arranged and performed by “jaw-dropping” (Pitchfork) saxophonist Rudresh Mahanthappa and three-time Grammy Award-winning drummer Terri Lyne Carrington in the questing spirit the high-flying Bird himself embodied.
