Saxophone With Strings
Play-Along CD
by Darcy Hepner
Darcy Hepner - Saxophone
I was in high school when a friend of my parents gave me a copy of the Charlie Parker with Strings: The Master Takes recording. I’ll never forget the impact of listening to this record for the first time. The marriage of Bird’s perfect lyricism and the pure romanticism of Jimmy Carroll’s’ arrangements for strings, oboe, and harp were breathtaking. I know I’m not the only jazz musician who feels this way. I’ve met many who talk about the first time they brought that record home from the store, or heard it at a friend’s house, and the strong impact it had on them. I’m sure by now I have listened to Just Friends and the rest of the recording at least a million times. No matter how many times I’ve listened it’s as beautiful as the first time I heard it.
