Charlie Parker Jazz Festival
The annual festival honoring jazz legend Charlie Parker features a lineup of (free!) acts that are legends in their own right. Opening night features the world premiere of "Bird is the Word," by Jimmy Heath, and other festival performers include the Lee Konitz Quartet, trumpeter Christian Scott, saxophonist Jaleel Shaw, singer Sheila Jordan and many more.
