UNHEARD is a contemporary reflection of Charlie Parker, and how he advanced a musical language in ways that were largely undiscovered beforehand. The project will take inspiration from his music in manners both direct and abstract, and everything in between. The presence of percussion in the ensemble will also pay respect to Bird’s undervalued contribution to Afro-Cuban jazz, and effectively allowing O’Farrill, Ross, and Wilkins to further expand their compositional voices.
