“They teach you there’s a boundary line to music. But, man, there’s no boundary line to art.” —Charlie Parker

Fly Higher: Charlie Parker at 100 celebrates one of the most innovative and influential artists in modern musical history and examines his impact on pop, hip hop, rap, rock and jazz. Acclaimed co-musical directors Rudresh Mahanthappa and Terri Lyne Carrington honor Charlie Parker’s centennial year by showcasing his uncompromising musical joy, humor and beauty, mining his deep repertoire and showcasing new, modern compositions. Rather than imitating the original, Fly Higher strives to offer new perspectives on tradition. Mahanthappa (alto saxophone) and Carrington (drums) will be joined by Charenée Wade (vocals), Adam O’Farrill (trumpet), Kris Davis (piano), Larry Grenadier (bass) and Kassa Overall (dj) for this extraordinary musical tribute to an American master.
