'unheard bird' is a collection of arrangements that Charlie Parker commissioned for strings but never got a chance to record. Charlie Parker recorded his classic "Bird with strings" arrangements while he was in his late twenties/early thirties, and was really proud of those recordings and expressed a desire to work more with a small string ensemble, harpist, oboist and rhythm section, but the economics even back then of traveling with anything besides a quintet were prohibitive.

So this record will hopefully serve as a "what if" regarding the short-lived (1929-1955) yet prolific career of one of the undisputed geniuses of modern music - most of these arrangements would have served as a significantly more ambitious follow-up to the classic string recordings the listener already knows.
