Her love of Jazz began at an early age. Really shows you the connection she had with the music that led her to the love of her life: Charlie "Bird" Parker. Chan Parker was a very strong and willful woman who suffered a great deal of loss in her life, but persevered through life's challenges and ultimately found peace in her later years.
