The Legend of Charlie Parker with the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra
Fri 11 November 2016, 19:30 – 22:00 GMT
There can be little doubt that Charlie Parker changed the face of modern jazz. His completely new approach to jazz stemmed from his search for his own distinctive voice on the saxophone and his name became synonymous with cutting edge jazz known as bebop.
As a creative benchmark for jazz musicians, the SNJO looks forward to exploring Parker’s music in exciting new arrangements for the orchestra, which will have their première in Aberdeen.
