JOHN SINCLAIR RADIO SHOW 885 – HOT HOUSE

Episode 885 is coming once again from the Center for the Study of World Religions at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts where I’m featuring a fifth and final hour of music from Charlie Parker in honor of the 100th aniversary of his birth in Kansas City on August 29, 1920. This hour features music Bird recorded for Norman Granz releases on the Norgran, Mercury & Verve labels in the first half of the 1950s, and several cuts from what’s called “The Greatest Jazz Concert of All Time” at Massey Hall in Toronto with Bird, Dizzy, Bud Powell, Mingus & Max Roach on May 15, 1953. Bird passed away at the age of 34 just two years later, on March 12, 1955. Bird lives!
