UNC Charlotte partners with JazzArts Charlotte to continue a Charlie Parker 101 celebration, including his own bebop jazz compositions plus featured selections from the rarely played Charlie Parker with Strings albums. Legendary jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker, “Bird”, led the development of bebop with his musically blazing virtuosity and revolutionary harmonic ideas. This musical collaboration, led by Dr Will Campbell, UNC Charlotte Director of Jazz Studies, includes a full string section and jazz combo. The JAZZ ROOM provides a casual and intimate setting with tables and a full bar, reminiscent of the classic jazz rooms of yesteryear.
