"There was nothing to do but play"

Recorded in Boston in early 1954
Did you know that Paul Desmond once interviewed Charlie Parker - and the tape exists?
Now you do and here it is.
This is the only fragment of the tape remaining, but what a fragment it is.
I could weep at the intelligence and seriousness of this young man knowing that at the time of this recording he had only one year left in his short life.
