Tales from the far Side 30.01.19 Bird Songs - the Spirit of Charlie Bird Parker

On this edition I pay tribute to the spirit and work of Charlie "Bird" Parker in celebration his compositions by musicians, who are deeply influenced by his music and who integrated into their own styles and artistic messages, featuring Roy Haynes, Sonny Stitt, Clifford Brown, Jaco Pastorius, Joe Lovano, Wes Montgomery and others with their renditions of "BIRD SONGS".

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
