The exhibit is filled with so many pieces of history related to the jazz movement. Now, another MAJOR artifact has been added to The Soul of Jazz: An American Adventure. 

Thanks to Imagineer Zach Riddley, we were able to get a first look at the addition of Charlie Parker’s saxophone to the exhibit! The Kansas City jazz musician used this saxophone in the 1940s as he helped create a new musical style called, “bebop,” alongside trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. Naturally, we had to go check it out ourselves!

“Bebop” ushered in the era of modern-day jazz, which is why it’s such an honor for Disney World to receive this artifact from the American Jazz Museum.
