ANCESTOR WORSHIP 22 – BIRD AT ST. NICK’S

Ancestor Worship With John Sinclair

Episode 22 is examining the music of Charlie Parker and his quintet with Red Rodney on trumpet and Roy Haynes at the drums recorded live at a dance at St. Nicholas Arena in Harlem sometime in 1948 or ’49, plus Bird with Jazz at the Philharmonic in 1946 playing the brilliant solo later set to words and sung by EddIe Jefferson, and a final cut by Bird live in Washington DC in the early ’50s.
