SNJO: The Legend of Charlie Parker

12 November 2016 at 7:30pm

There can be little doubt that Charlie “Yardbird” Parker changed the face of modern jazz.

Parker grew up at a time when this amazing music was coming of age, and he came to personify many of its most provocative features. The creation of a completely new approach to jazz stemmed from Parker’s search for his own distinctive voice on the saxophone and his name became synonymous with the cutting edge jazz form known as bebop, and his music provided a creative benchmark for jazz musicians.

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra has commissioned new arrangements of his music and looks forward to showcasing the fabulous music of Charlie Parker in concert.
