"Everyone's agreed on what Charlie Parker did for Jazz.  The arguments start when anyone talks about who he was.  But there's a remarkable consensus - even among people who knew the alto saxophonist - that Live Bird, Boston based playwright, actor, saxophonist Jeff Robinson's one man play about Parker gets him right." - Ed Hazell, Jazziz Magazine
