2005, Tribute to Bird : The Hummingbird

For the first time in the history of instrument making, Selmer Paris is inviting musicians to follow in the footsteps of a Reference collection. “Tribute to Bird” is a celebration: that of the 50th anniversary of the death of the legendary Charlie Parker (1920-1955) and a tribute to the initiatory approach with which he inspired the world of Jazz.
For five years, this unique collection, signed Selmer Paris, will be formed, with every annual edition offering in a variety of forms a specific engraving, an original work by an artisan-engraver, and an original design, a poetic look at the culture of a continent.
Appropriate case and accessories will contribute an exceptional touch to this elegant ensemble.
But, above all, this collection will remain a state of mind, the free spirit of “Bird”, imbued with musical openness and creative energy. 2005: honor to Parker! BIRD takes on the colors of the enigmatic hummingbird in the sky of the Americas!
