Charlie Parker: Reverberations

January 13 | 6:30 pm

Saxophonist Charlie Parker

Arguably the greatest saxophonist of all time, Charlie Parker changed the course of jazz music. His genius reverberated well beyond the musical circles of his time to inspire masterful players like John Coltrane, writers like Ralph Ellison and visual artists as disparate as Jean-Michel Basquiat and Romare Bearden. In partnership with the UNC Charlotte Department of Music’s Charlie Parker 101 project, this event includes live music, a spoken-word performance by Hannah Hasan, and a panel conversation featuring internationally acclaimed saxophonist Charles McPherson.
