We welcome back ‘Charlie Parker On Dial’ – a tribute to jazz genius Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker, written and arranged by Alex Webb (creator of Cafe Society Swing), with vocalist Vimala Rowe.

'Good script, good concept, fantastic music' - London Jazz News

‘An unadulterated delight’ -

‘A continuously exuberant ride ... performed by a band as razor-sharp as those suits’ -

Charlie Parker On Dial focuses on just two years of Bird’s hectic life – the period he recorded with Ross Russell’s Dial label, producing classics such as Ornithology, Night in Tunisia, Relaxin’ at Camarillo, Scrapple From The Apple and Klacto-veeseds-tene – and revolutionising 1940s jazz in the process.

Alto sax virtuoso Nathaniel Facey leads this narrated celebration of jazz genius Charlie Parker, with a band including Steve Fishwick (trumpet), Alex Webb (piano/MD), Aliocha Thevenet (guitar),  Alex Davis (bass) and Andy Chapman (drums), along with special guest, vocalist Vimala Rowe, whose album 'Out Of The Sky' was a Sunday Times jazz album of 2016.
