Bird Lives!

Bird Lives!The Jacco van Santen Quintet brings the music of Charlie “Bird” Parker back to life. Inspired by mainly the lesser known compositions of the jazzmaster, these five musicians strive for a creative approach with a positive energy. Especially for this occasion, Jacco plays the Grafton saxophone, the same type as Charlie Parker did on the famous Massey Hall concert.  This is a very hard to find and special instrument, made of acrylic plastic. Because of it’s vulnerability, it is very rare to hear the instrument played live. The instrument definitely has a character of it’s own and is hard to play. A definitive must-see for both connaisseurs and music lovers!
