funny thing about that sculpture - it is in Kansas City (where I lived for a couple of years)at the foot of the partially renovated 18th and Vine district, which the city hoped would become a jazz tourist magnet. Parker famously said in his life that NYC was his home and he hoped never to go back to Kansas City, but his family had him buried in a nearby cemetery, and the city commissioned his bust to preside over their failed jazz preservation efforts. Most of the buildings there were still derelict with the facades Robert Altman slapped up when he made his film there.
