Charlie Parker Place. That’s my corner, just down from Bird’s house, now a historic landmark in the East Village. At times I imagine hearing him practice as I go by, infusing each rhythmic step and melodic turn with his characteristic sense of exaltation. “Bluing a new cartography of flight” is how poet Arthur Brown put it. This concert will celebrate that Bird’s music points us forward, combining music with the images and syntax that he and his compatriots inspired in poets, then and now.

What: The Cartographies of Flight – MARTY EHRLICH – Musical Director
When: Friday, May 31 – Concert at 8:30PM
Where: TRIBECA PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, 199 CHAMBERS STREET NYC 10007
