With a conversation with Branford Marsalis.


“I’ve done a lot of pictures with jazz scores, from Play Misty for Me to The Enforcer. But I had never done a picture about a jazz personality per se. Why Charlie Parker? When I was fifteen or sixteen, I’d seen him on two or three occasions, and I’d always been fascinated by him. There was something special about the way he played, a very confident sound. His presence was overwhelming. It was like Gary Cooper or Clark Gable standing next to John Doe. There was a big magnetism there.” C.E.
