Three of a Kind
Three versions of the same jazz composition, played by different artists.
Ample attention was paid by Concertzender to the 100th anniversary of alto saxophone player Charlie Yardbird Parker (1920-1955) on late 29 August. In the weeks to come, more music of Parker will be played in this programme, also in interpretations by other musicians.
Today, the compositions are:
• Billie’s Bounce, written in 1945.
• Scrapple From The Apple, written in 1947.
• Yardbird Suite, written in 1946.
