cover to Bird Up - The Charlie Parker Remix ProjectWe’ve heard jazz classics from the Verve and Blue Note catalogs remixed and reworked. Now it’s Bird’s turn. On October 21, Savoy Records will release Bird Up: The Charlie Parker Remix Project. Dan the Automator, Me’shell Ndegeocello, Hal Willner, Rob Swift, and Serj Tankian (from System of a Down) are among the artists transforming some of Parker’s music. You won’t believe Serj’s reconstruction of “Bird of Paradise (Gone)”. Willner, Mocean Worker, the Kronos Quartet, and Dr. John collaborate on “Salt Peanuts (The Mr. Peanut Chronicles)”. Hubert Laws contributes to two tracks, including “Conga Blues” which also features the diverse talents of Ravi Coltrane, Wild Children, and Kodo. There’s also a lot of names I haven’t seen before, but I’m anxious to hear them.
