Music written by, for, or associated with the great Charlie Parker. This recording, performed by internationally renowned jazz musicians, features adventurous new arrangements which explore new possibilities and angles of these classic Parker pieces.

"This album is a triumph for the chemistry within the quartet."

Irish Times, April 20 2000

"Masterful playing and ingenious reworking of some classic tunes."

Journal of Music in Ireland, Nov/Dec 2000

Ronan Guilfoyle is a major figure on the Irish jazz scene, and has developed an international reputation as a performer, teacher and composer. He is very active in all three areas, has performed with many great figures in contemporary jazz, and has recorded extensively both as a sideman and a leader. He has composed for both classical and jazz ensembles, recorded extensively, and is an acknowledged authority on the teaching of advanced rhythmic concepts for jazz improvisation.

"One of Ireland's most innovative composers"

Sunday Times

Guilfoyle's pieces are the product of an enterprising ear: atmospheric, harmonically adventurous, with an attractively ambiguous ease about them.

Jazz Times

"One of the central figures of the Irish jazz scene"

Trinity College Journal

"His concert series has set standards for any others presenting modern jazz in Ireland"

Sunday Business Post
