A One-Man Play About Bird

The trailer for Live Bird – One-man play about Jazz legend Charlie “Bird” Parker.

“I knew Charlie as a man and not simply as a musical genius. Jeff portrays the Charlie I knew.” Widow, Doris Parker

“He got him! He caught the spirit and sound of Bird, from the tone of his voice to the sound of his saxophone. Live Bird lifted me. I was touched by the play and Jeff’s performance. Brilliantly constructed.” Charlie Parker’s daughter, Kim Parker

“Everyone’s agreed on what Charlie Parker did for Jazz. The arguments start when anyone talks about who he was. But there’s a remarkable consensus – even among people who knew the alto saxophonist – that Live Bird, Boston-based playwright, actor, saxophonist Jeff Robinson’s one-man play about Parker gets him right.” Ed Hazell, Jazziz Magazine
