For the first time ever on DVD! Among the many tributes paid to Bird's memory was a tour by a sextet including musicians closely related to Parker. The leaders were Sonny Stitt, a saxophonist of enormous talent and brilliant technique, and trombonist J.J. Johnson, who played and recorded with Parker many times. All of the musicians on this sextet (Howard McGhee, Walter Bishop Jr., Tommy Potter, Kenny Clarke) were well known stars in their own right.
