It's time for the 2020-21 season recap! WQED-FM continues their annual rebroadcasts of our last season with Daniel Schnyder & Bridgette A. Wimberly's Charlie Parker’s Yardbird.
While the body of the legendary tormented saxophonist Charlie “Yardbird” Parker lies unidentified in a New York City morgue, his ghost travels back to Birdland, the famed New York City jazz club named after him. As he struggles to complete his final masterpiece, the great bebop innovator revisits the demons, inspirations, and women who have both fueled and hindered his creative genius.
