and, a bit of musical conundrum: moondog’s ‘bird’s lament’: and alice contrane’s ‘turiya and ramakrishna’

certainly not a cover of ‘bird’, aka, charlie parker, but nonetheless a very moving tribute to him:

no doubt in any case a great, compositional tribute by the viking of 6th ave… “the blind busker,” louis thomas harlan, who remains one of the all time great jazz musicians.

supplemented, in decon terms, by alice contrane, equally indeterminate… as no kind of cover of her father… as brilliant as moondog’s non-cover of Bird.
