Dr Rodger Fox, New Zealand's own jazz genius, is about to hit the road with U.S legendary saxophonist, Dick Oatts and the New Zealand String Quartet to pay homage to U.S jazz maestro Charlie Parker. The tour, Charlie Parker With Strings, will feature Parker's famous tracks from the Verve album plus the bebop sound characterised by fast tempos, virtuoso technique and advanced harmonies. Rodger joins Jim ahead of the week long road trip across the North Island to talk about Jazz, Charlie and their concerts.
