The Music of Charlie Parker brought to you by Gilad Atzmon with Strings +support: Gary Willcox Quartet
Line up confirmed: Gilad Atzmon - sax & clarinet, Frank Harrison - piano, Yaron Stavi -  bs, Derin Bayhan - dr, Ros Stephen - Violin, and Marianne Haynes -Violin, Felix Tanner - Viola, Laura Anstee - cello.

Ronnie Scott’s is privileged to welcome Israeli-born Gilad Atzmon performing the music of arguably the greatest alto sax player in jazz history, Charlie Parker. On the night, Gilad will be accompanied by a full string section adding depth to bird's classic compositions. This is a must-see show that has been earning rave reviews around the country!

As jazz critic Phil Johnson notes “While most jazz tribute projects are dry as dust, Gilad Atzmon's marvelous evocation of Charlie Parker's legendary 1949 Verve recording with strings somehow succeeds in conveying Bird's mercurial genius, as well as accurately re-presenting what counts as some of the most profoundly beautiful music ever made”.

Gilad also dabbles impressively on soprano and tenor as well as clarinet and a variety of lesser known wind instruments. He  has made a fine name for himself as a formidable hard bop player, whose occasional forays into freer territory demonstrate a restless creative instinct. Respected as a composer as well as a player,  Atzmon is a searching, searing musician who pulls no punches in providing a lively show but is able to marry the effervescence of his more driving tunes with a more measured melodic approach to his ballads. A highly recommended evening of top-quality musicianship and tribute to the great Bird.
