CLARENCE JOHNSON III'S TRIBUTE TO CHARLIE PARKER

Friday, August 30, 2019, 3:00 AM


Clarence Johnson III first turned heads as a sax-playing drum major for the Brother Martin High School marching band in the early 1990s. Within a few years, he was one of the Crescent City’s most acclaimed young modern jazz saxophonists, with an array of awards to prove it. In 1998, he released a CD called “Dedicated to You” via STR Digital Records. He spent the next couple years touring and promoting it, as well as performing with bassist George Porter Jr.’s Runnin’ Pardners. He has since performed with the Delfeayo Marsalis Quintet, the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra, Dr. John, and members of the Neville Brothers.  

Tonight, Johnson presents his tribute to the late, great Charlie Parker.  A saxophonist and composer also known as Yardbird and Bird, Parker was a highly influential jazz solist and a leading figure in the development of bebop, a form of jazz characterized by fast tempos, virtuosic technique and advanced harmonies.
