About For 'Bird' - With Love
From all of us forever touched by his magic.
A tribute to the great jazz musician Charlie “Bird” Parker, For ‘Bird’ - With Love brings the audience back to the relaxed atmosphere of an after-hours jam session at a local jazz club. The dancers emulate Parkers’ swing-based style and knack for improvisation while dressed to the nines. In the bejeweled costumes designed by Randy Barcelo, the Company revels in the sounds of Parker himself, Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie and Jerome Kern.
