The National Jazz Museum in Harlem Presents:
Jazz on Film
Bird of a Nation: Charlie Parker and Clint Eastwood's Biopic
Clint Eastwood had the best of intentions when he created
his Charlie Parker biopic Bird in 1988. Nonetheless, it
perpetuated many of the myths that still dog jazz and its
musicians. Parker is reduced to a fun-loving, headed for
self-destruction man/child, totally devoid of the
intelligence and maturity of the real Parker.
