Fly Higher brings a septet of stars for a centennial tribute to jazz legend and bebop pioneer Charlie ("Bird') Parker. Considered "one of the finest saxophonists going" (Pitchfork), Rudresh Mahanthappa partners with three-time Grammy-winning drummer, composer and bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington to lead a stunning lineup for the project: Charenée Wade (vocals), Adam O'Farrill (trumpet), Kris Davis (piano), Larry Grenadier (bass) and Kassa Overall, (DJ). Honoring Parker’s musical legacy but looking beyond it, their concert tracks the impact of an artist whose innovations as a player and composer changed the path of jazz—and powerfully influenced the evolution of new music that would become pop, rock and hip hop.
