Live Bird is a one-man show celebrating the life of jazz legend Charlie Bird Parker written, directed and starring Jeff Robinson. The play is set in a bar in Harlem, NY the summer of 1947. Bird talks about his days in Kansas City, Missouri to imaginary characters, imitates Lester Young and plays some of his own songs.  Here are some quotes about the play.

I knew Charlie as a man and not simply as a musical genius. Jeff portrays the Charlie I knew. Widow, Doris Parker
This is one of the best plays about Bird that Ive ever experienced
Frank Morgan, Jazz Legend and Charlie Parker protege!

Live Bird should be moved to off-Broadway... It deserves wider exposure
Ira Gitler, Jazz Historian, Critic

Robinson has Bird down cold... Robinson does it so convincingly youll forgive Parker for his flaws just to be in his presence
David Yaffe, The Village Voice

If you have an opportunity to see Jeff Robinsons Live Bird you must.
Nick Catalano, All About Jazz.com
It takes a multifaceted individual to conceive and perform a one-man play on Charlie Parker, and Jeff Robinson fits the bill
Bob Blumenthal, Jazz Historian, Critic
