BEBOP INVADES THE WEST

Celebrating Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker’s Historic Los Angeles Debut

Friday, August 29, 2014

8:30pm

Los Angeles Musicians Union Auditorium

817 Vine St., Hollywood

featuring Jazz Legends

Charles McPherson and Jon Faddis

with Charlie Shoemake, Tom Ranier and more

In December of 1945 Dizzy Gillespie brought an all star sextet to Hollywood for an 8 week engagement at Billy Berg’s Nightclub. It was a significant event in Los Angeles jazz history which brought the creators of modern jazz to the West Coast. In addition to Bird and Dizzy the group included Milt Jackson, Al Haig, Ray Brown and Stan Levey. To celebrate this momentous occasion we return to Vine St. to present an incredible all star sextet performing the bebop classics that were introduced to West Coast audiences during that historic engagement. August 29 is also Charlie Parker’s birthday so it will be a double celebration and a night you won’t want to miss.
