Happy Birthday, Bird - Charles Drago - 30-08-2013

Charlie Parker with Coleman Hawkins, Hank Jones, Ray Brown, Buddy Rich ...

Dig Bird's joyous smile and rolling eyes ... in awe as Hawk soars.

Note that the video -- film shot by the celebrated Gjon Mili -- and audio are not synchronized. Different takes are used because no complete a/v takes survive.

Narration by impresario Norman Granz.

Bird Lives!
