This week we open with the Greg Abate Quintet and then go on marking the Charlie Parker centennial. Champian Fulton has a new album honoring Bird, Birdsong and we hear her take on "Yardbird Suite." There are profiles of Kenny Washington, Daniel Hersog and Hal Galper. We also pay respects to musicians that left us in August 2020, including Charlie Persip and Steve Grossman. Long live Bird and enjoy the music.
