CHARLIE PARKER JAZZ FESTIVAL August 23-24, 2014
(Published: August 07, 2014)

City Parks Foundation Presents the CHARLIE PARKER JAZZ FESTIVAL August 23-24, 2014
City Parks Foundation is proud to announce the 22nd edition of the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival. Founded in memoriam of beloved jazz musician Charlie Parker, this festival annually attracts thousands of fans to two historic parks in Manhattan. The festival will kick off in Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem, blocks from the famous jazz clubs where Parker graced the stage, and move to Tompkins Square Park in the East Village on Sunday, just across the street from the late Parker's apartment.

In the words of Miles Davis, "You can tell the history of jazz in four words: Louis Armstrong. Charlie Parker." Almost sixty years after his passing, Parker is celebrated and credited for his contribution to modern music through rhythmically and melodically complex solos and his creation of the bebop sound. The acts in this year's festival will offer a wide range of performances reflective of Parker's music and of the ever-changing genre of jazz. From Wallace Roney to Brianna Thomas, this year's lineup will feature both jazz veterans and up-and-coming stars alike.

The 2014 festival also features two panel discussions, entitled "The Marriage of Latin Music & Jazz," led by Joe Conzo Sr., Latin music historian & publicist of the late Tito Puente. The panels will explore the historical background and cultural significance of these two movements and pay specific homage to Parker's influence.

Come join us to celebrate Charlie Parker's legacy - both to New York City and to the world of jazz.

The complete Charlie Parker Jazz Festival schedule follows. For up-to-date scheduling and lineup for all SummerStage programming, follow SummerStage via the links below and visit www.SummerStage.org.
