Charlie Parker Centennial + 1 “Bird 101”: Champian Fulton Quartet
August 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
One year late, due to the NYC live music lockdown, Birdland presents a Charlie Parker Centennial Celebration, “Bird 101.” Pianist, vocalist, and Oklahoma native Champian Fulton kicks it off with music from her quartet release “Birdsong,” featuring carefully chosen compositions written by and/or made famous by Charlie Parker. “I wanted to focus not only on his originals, but on his recordings that I consider to be some of the most beautiful songs ever recorded,” said Champian, “these songs are classic Bird, with rangy and dramatic melodies, romantic lyrics and adventurous chord changes.”
