Once again, the city becomes a movable ode to Bird for a weekend in August. While this fest may be named for the legendary Charlie Parker, SummerStage’s jazz program isn’t stuck in the past. This year’s boundary-pushing talent, presented over three days, includes composer Randy Weston’s African Rhythms Sextet, keyboardist Jason Lindner’s Breeding Ground and piano powerhouse Jason Moran.

I´m already there... closing my eyes and feeling the bird all around. Floating in the park, with the taste of the air, the rain, the fog... mesmerized by every single feeling this master´s music feed me with. Oh I´m already there...

Gives you every reason to travel uptown. Great venue, mellow crowd, world class musicians, jazz legends, all for free. Be glad you stayed in the City this weekend. Come out and celebrate summer and America's original art form. Hope this becomes a tradition.
