Charlie Parker's influence on all jazz musicians has always been peerless. And it goes far beyond saxophonists... That is more or less what Larry Klein was trying to convey with his work The Passion Of Charlie Parker. The producer even describes this project as a piece of musical theatre telling the story of his life, creating a musical language that allows one to imagine what the Bird's music might sound like if he was playing it today. "Lyrically, Klein explains, I worked with David Baerwald, a songwriter with whom I have worked extensively, and known for his albums with his own group David and David, and a songwriter with the lyrical facility to write programmatic material to the unusually jagged melodic nature of Charlie Parker’s compositions. We worked together to create a narrative thread that runs through the album, and to create a tableau where the songs are delivered by a number of characters from Charlie's life, as well as three that are delivered in Charlie's own voice, played by Jeffrey Wright. " This adventure brings together Donny McCaslin, who, alongside guitarist Ben Monder and drummer Mark Giuliana, worked on David Bowie's last album, Blackstar. The trio is backed up by other demanding jazzmen like Eric Harland, Craig Taborn, Larry Grenadier and Scott Colley. In terms of vocals, Larry Klein has opted for a pleasant eclecticism, taking in some of the singers he has worked with in the past: Barbara Hannigan, Gregory Porter, Melody Gardot, Luciana Souza, Madeleine Peyroux, Kurt Elling, Kandace Springs and Camille Bertault. The originality of the Passion Of Charlie Parker means that it spares the public yet another album of polished, taxidermical Bird covers. But, above all, it is the spirit of this record and its production which makes it an interesting work, which strays far from the beaten track. © MD/Qobuz
