Kim Parker, daughter of legendary musician Charlie Parker, spoke about his life on FOX 4’s morning show on Wednesday. Although he died when she was young, she has a tremendous amount of respect for him and enjoys keeping her father’s memory alive. A man of true musical brilliance, Parker’s influence spans 50 years of music. This weekend Kansas City’s Broadway Jazz Club is hosting celebrations in his honor.
