This is a rather unusual tribute to the immortal alto saxophonist. It is a solo guitar recital, and the program is drawn from the standards Parker recorded with a string orchestra, rather than his rich legacy of bebop originals. But with his instrumental facility, rapid-fire imagination, and command of the rhythmic idiom that Parker pioneered, Joe Pass turns this into a most appropriate homage. The unlikely conjunction of program and subject make this one of the more revealing performances of a jazz guitar giant.
