About This Performance

Two landmark jazz occasions, one historic night! Celebrating the “grandfather of all jazz festivals,” today’s top musicians honor the first jazz festival in America, its innovative programming and its rich heritage. Opening the evening, we pay tribute to one of the greatest bebop concerts of all time: Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell and Max Roach at Massey Hall, Toronto, 1953.
