Now's the Time: Joe Lovano
Joe Lovano and Us 5 showcased material from Bird Songs, an audacious tribute to Kansas City's Charlie Parker, at the Gem Theater in 2011. While Lovano will appear in support of the vocalist Deborah Brown at the Prairie Village Jazz Festival on Saturday, September 6, it's my understanding that the saxophonist will also play a selection or two from Bird Songs at Harmon Park. Joe Klopus previewed the event.
