And now for something completely different

With all the bad news coming out these days, let’s take a moment to close our eyes and listen to a bird in flight.  Charlie Parker is such a natural, he closes his eyes and lets his fingers do their thing; now that’s playing.  This number is called Celebrity

  1. Assuming that’s Max Roach (who it must be), he’s tearing it up too!

  2. a friend tells me that’s not Max Roach on drums, it’s Buddy Rich.
