Charlie Parker is great. {I saw the movie}.

Miles Davis, and Chet Baker are also a couple of my favorites.

Yes, that recording of Dizzy playing Night in Tunisia is just the epitome of cool.  Hard to top that!

In the Chaka Khan version of Night in Tunisia, the big saxophone break just before the 4 min. mark is actually Charlie Parker which they sampled in.  Kinda fun and a nice homage.  

Speaking of.........

Anyone see the movie "Bird" directed by Clint Eastwood?  An excellent biographical movie about Charlie Parker.

Sarah Vaughn is ALWAYS fabulous!

Chaka Kahn, Sarah Vaughn are great.

Here's Dizzy's rendition of A Night in Tunisia.

I'll check out Jerome Isma-Ae
