MASTERS OF AMERICAN MUSIC is an award winning television series that is entertaining, educational and memorable, through conversations, exciting rare performances, period footage and vintage photographs meticulously reproduced. 'The Triumph of Charlie Parker' documents the virtuoso saxophone legend who created a new style of jazz and won equal fame as the king of the hipsters. This documentary takes a revealing look at an enigmatic yet endlessly appealing man who soared to the heights of creative freedom but couldn't beat a lifelong addiction to heroin. One of the highlights: Parker's only surviving TV appearance playing 'Hot House'. Written by Gary Giddins, Directed by Gary Giddins and Kendrick Simmons, and produced by Toby Byron.
