Charlie Parker – Bird with strings revisited

Director: Giuseppe De Vecchi
Genre: Live Show


For the young producer Norman Granz, the signing of Charlie Parker to the Mercury label was a real coup. The saxophonist had been thinking for some years about the opportunity to record music outside his usual quintet. The “Charlie Parker with Strings” project was an old dream of his that he realized in 1949. With an oboe, a few violins, a viola, a cello, a harp, a piano, a double bass and drums, he gave a new sound to classics of the 1930s like “Just Friends” or “April in Paris”. Jazz at the Philharmonie celebrates this superb encounter by bringing together a group of talented saxophonists (Géraldine Laurent, Pierrick Pédron, Thomas de Pourquery, Jaleel Shaw and Olivier Bogé) on new arrangements by Christophe Dal Sasso.
