Kansas City Lightning
Charlie Parker personified the tortured American artist: a revolutionary performer who used his saxophone to create a new music known as bebop even as he wrestled with a drug addiction that would lead to his premature death. The story re-creates Parker's Depression-era childhood; his early days navigating the Kansas City nightlife, inspired by lions like Lester Young; and on to New York, where he began to transcend the music he had mastered.
