Celebrating Bird: The Triumph of Charlie Parker
Subscribe to Jazz on the Tube
This 1989 documentary details the life of one of jazz's great innovators, Charlie Parker.
Bird's accomplishments are explored through rare footage and interviews with those close to him, including family members and musicians like Dizzy Gillespie, Roy Haynes, and Roy Porter.
Parker's career wasn't without its share of obstacles, however: a battle against heroin addiction, rampant racial prejudice, and the loss of his daughter all challenged Bird's success.
