In 1949, Charlie Parker envisioned an album that would link jazz to pop and influence artists to come. His legendary venture with strings has done just that. Parker with Strings set his searching solos against a lush string quartet. And onstage Bird lives - as we feature saxophonists Wess Anderson and Charles McPherson and the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas.
