Great BennyV 2010-02-17 12:32

One of the absolute geniusses of 20th century music, and judging from this rather dire sculpture he STILL is neglected. I'd expected a joyful, dynamic, vibrant, bee-bop-crazy work of art, this looks like a death mask. Where's the passion?

Thumbs up to you for showing it here, 'cause I'd never seen it before. But what a missed opportunity!

Default To BennyV: Charlie Parker's expression

I think this view of Yardbird was inspired by photos of him with saxophone - the mouthpiece just inches away from his lips. My opinion is that if the sculptor had added a sax, his expression would seem quite natural.
