Loosely Based on Charlie "Yardbird" Parker
9 April 2002 | by (Newark ,N.J.) – See all my reviews

I loved this, there is many layers to this like a cake.But a strange cake it is man,.You have to be somewhat into Jazz music to love it like me .I think it really captures the time it was made ,if you made a living playing Jazz in the mid to late 50's you really did'nt know where your next meal might come from .One minute you're on top of the world, next minute could see you begging in the street ,wallowing in your own filth .Excellent performance by all involved ,Its a fairly rare piece ,and not for everyone.
