    The brief life and extraordinary times of American jazz great Charlie Parker is the subject of this Argentinian biography by director Osias Wilenski. One of the greatest saxophonists of all time, Parker was also riddled with serious addictions and mental instabilities that eventually claimed his life in New York at the age of thirty-four. Born in Kansas City, MO, Parker — known as the “Bird” — was addicted to heroin as a teen. As his jazz career took off and he played with some of the biggest talents, like Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, Parker was battling his own demons. This drama moves forward and backward in the saxophonist’s life and does so with more examples of his music than of pithy dialogue. Sergio Renan plays Parker. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, RoviRead More »
