It was a hot week in mid-July 1952 when Charlie Parker returned to his Kansas City hometown as a star -- the jazz music pioneer who'd mentored practically all of the now-emerging giants, from Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Thelonious Monk and many others. 

The grand & esteemed jazz club El Capitan sat at the corner of 18th and Vine for decades -- serving as both the center and the beating heart of the famous KC Jazz district. 

A one-week engagement with the hometown hero proved too irresistible, and so a matinee was added, then more dates, then a second week.
