From the box:
The year: 1946. The event: Oakland’s “Jazz at the Philharmonic.” The music streaked into the unknown, daring listeners to grab hold and fly there too. On stage was the creator of those new sounds: Charlie “Yardbird” Parker. In the crowd was the 16-year-old who would someday bring Parker’s extraordinary story to the screen: Clint Eastwood.
