"I didn't approach this as a tribute record," states Joe Lovano, dispelling right off the bat any preconception that his new album BIRD SONGS - an exploration of the Charlie Parker songbook - is a mere retread. Lovanos 22nd album for Blue Note Records (the release of which will mark his 20th year on the label) breaks the mold of Bird tribute records. BIRD SONGS is a thrillingly adventurous, thoroughly modern, and uniquely personal look at one of the most influential figures in jazz history by one of the most important voices in the music today.
