Celebrate Charlie Parker the greatest way possible—with a listening party featuring his most essential recordings, curated and hosted by Brian Delp of WBGO, the radio station The New York Times called “arguably the best jazz station in the world.”

Delp, who hosts the station’s Midday Jazz show, drops the proverbial needle on seminal Bird tracks like “Now’s the Time,” “Ko-Ko,” “Ornithology,” “Lester Leaps In,” “Star Eyes,” “Embraceable You” and more,, all with insights into Parker’s artistry and collaborators, and commentary on what makes these recordings touchstones of jazz. Tune in!
