History of Birdland
Ever since most of Chicago’s top musicians moved to New York in the mid-to-late 1920s, New York City has
been the Jazz Mecca. Nearly every major jazz style of the past seventy years has been initiated in the Big Apple.
It was Charlie Parker, familiarly known to his fans and fellow musicians as “Bird,” a contraction of Yardbird,
his formal nickname, who was the dynamic creative personality and genius of the alto saxophone who served
as the inspiration for Birdland.
