This past week's Night Lights up for online listening:

Bird Lives! The Charlie Parker Memorial Concert Songbook

Music (all of it Parker-penned tunes) from the 1957 Five Spot gig with Phil Woods, the 1962 and 1970 concerts in Chicago with Ira Sullivan and Dexter Gordon, and the 1964 Newport tribute that brought together J.J. Johnson, Howard McGhee, and Max Roach (I posted a video from this group as well). Hoping to get an "outtake" segment with more music from the Chicago shows up on the page in the next couple of days.


Many thanks to several board members who assisted with this show.
