BIRD WITH STRINGS
WITH CHARLES McPHERSON,
WESS "WARMDADDY" ANDERSON,
VINCENT GARDNER & STRING SECTION
MARCH 11-12 - ROSE THEATER
In 1949, Charlie Parker with Strings was the recording that transformed Charlie "Bird" Parker into a pop superstar. Sixty years later those orchestrations, like the classics "Just Friends" and "April In Paris," still sound brilliant and fresh. Bird with Strings features alto saxophonists Charles McPherson and Wess "Warmdaddy" Anderson, with trombonist/Music Director Vincent Gardner. The first half of the show will be performed in a sextet setting, and in the second half, with a string section and more. In addition to Gardner, McPherson and Anderson, the artists include: Ryan Kisor (trumpet), Ehud Asherie (piano), Ben Wolfe (bass), and Victor Lewis (drums). Bird With Strings takes place March 11-12 in Rose Theater at 8pm. There is a free pre-concert lecture each night at 7pm.
