Remembering Bird (and Bix)

by Andy V.

Interesting editorial piece by Arthur Brooks in NY Times today, Charlie Parker's 97th birthday.

There are obvious similarities in terms of genius, professional activities, and trajectories between Bird and Bix. I wonder what Bix Forumites think of Brooks' conceit in the article.

The author of this article is president of the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative-leaning think-tank. Brooks played classical music professionally (French horn) for years before moving on to the academic/intellectual world.
