Charlie Parker Interviewed by Paul Desmond

While digging through the John Coltrane archive last week for the 50th Anniversary of A Love Supreme, we also unearthed an interview of Charlie Parker by fellow alto saxophonist Paul Desmond. Recorded in 1954, a year before Parker passed, this rare footage gives us "the facts" behind Parker's prolific technique, and a greater perspective on his concept (bebop), which changed music in the 1940s.
