Elias Tanenbaum Chases Charlie Parker With A Synthesizer

a mad merging of alto genius Charlie Parker with a synthesizer played by Elias Tanenbaum in 1972.
which works
& doesn't work
is right
& wrong
go back to 1955, the year Charlie Parker died
then move forward a year & hear the soundtrack to Forbidden Planet
whilst still remembering Charlie 'Bird' Parker's music
& you might be hearing the Future of Jazz
except you won't because this isn't an attempt to be that.
it's just a crazy idea by someone who loves both Jazz & electronic music.
