The Javon Jackson Quintet featuring Donald Harrison
There is only one individual who unquestionably revolutionized jazz, taking it from the bouncy, danceable Swing Era to searing Bebop. That was Kansas City-born alto saxophonist Charlie “Bird” Parker. His impact on the emerging art form was astounding and breathtaking, creating an extraordinary improvisational style and even an iconoclastic lifestyle that changed music and individual expression forever.
The band paying tribute to Bird includes saxophonists Javon Jackson and Donald Harrison, pianist George Cables, bassist Gerald Cannon, and drummer McClenty Hunter.
