Composer: Lee Konitz

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.
