Charlie Parker Centennial + 1 “Bird 101”: Donald Harrison Quartet
August 21 @ 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm
One year late, due to the NYC live music lockdown, Birdland presents a Charlie Parker Centennial Celebration, “Bird 101.” Legendary New Orleans alto saxophonist Donald Harrison leads his quartet through a program of Bird inspired material. The inspiration for the HBO series “Treme,” Harrison played with jazz legends Roy Haynes, Art Blakey, Eddie Palmieri, Dr. John, Lena Horne, Miles Davis, and many more before creating his own modern jazz take on the New Orleans second-line tradition and leading his own groups in the 1980’s through today.
