Fats Navarro Tribute, Sunday 1:00-4:30 PM

September 24 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Fats Navarro Tribute at The Green Parrot

We look forward to our Annual  Fats Navarro Tribute, one of our all-time favorite events, this year marking the 100th anniversary of the birth of bebop jazz trumpeter and Key West-native Theodore “Fats” Navarro, marked by a set by The Mike Emerson Quintet and fronted by trumpeter Kenny Fradley and featuring Mark Rose, Hal Howland and special guest Robert Bebob Grabowski. It’s our 17th Annual musical tribute to the seminal jazz pioneer and native-son, considered by many, including Dizzy Gillespie himself, to be the best bebop trumpeter of all time.
Included is a Mayor’s Proclamation naming Sunday, September 24th, the centennial of Fats’ birth, as officially “Fats Navarro Day” in Key West.
