Happy Birthday, Bird
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!

Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Roy Eldridge & others:


About as good as it gets.
