JAZZ @ HATHAWAY: Yardbird to Freebird

  • Hathaway House 791 Co Rd 25 Tannersville, NY 12485 United States (map)

Sharing their passion for bebop and the music of master saxophonist Charlie “Yardbird” Parker, the ever-dynamic and vanguard jazz quartet Walking Distance present this Catskill Jazz Factory debut of their upcoming sophomore release, Freebird.

By stretching, flipping, reversing, and reorganizing Parker’s compositions, Walking Distance have created uniquely original pieces that retain the essential spirit and energy of Parker’s masterpieces, infused with contemporary flair.

Pianist Orrin Evans, a hard-charging force in the jazz world and bandleader of more than 25 albums, joins this reflection on Parker’s towering legacy.

In the words of Miles Davis, “You can tell the history of jazz in four words: Louis Armstrong. Charlie Parker.”

Co-presented with Catskill Jazz Factory in part with the 23Arts Summer Music & Jazz Festival.
