Concert at Gem Theater to recall 1953 Toronto show by jazz giants

The American Jazz Museum has signed a touring band that will pay tribute to the music that Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Charles Mingus and Max Roach played on May 15, 1953, at Toronto’s Massey Hall. The band will play on Saturday night at the Gem Theater. And the group paying homage is a powerful one itself.
