Description
Every sale benefits Parker's estate!   

This is a Bluescentric Brand authentic Charlie Parker long sleeve t-shirt, available in sizes up to 5XL and several colors, the material is 6oz pre-shrunk 100% heavy cotton (athletic heather 99%) with long sleeves, double-needle sleeve and bottom hem, and a side seam.

When Charlie Parker returned to his Kansas City hometown on a hot July week in 1952, he returned home a big star. 

With a saxophone in hand, Parker had become the music pioneer, mentoring practically every emerging jazz giant -- Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Max Roach and many others. 

The El Capitan was the beating heart of 18th & Vine, placed right on the corner of the famed Jazz District's namesake crossroads, and there was no more fitting place for Parker to make his triumphant return. 

A one week engagement quickly became too popular, and so a matinee was added, and then a whole second week. 

The legendary residency would prove to be a high water mark between the saxophone legend & the city that raised him; KC would would have precious few chances to experience Charlie Parker's genius again.
