John and Ravi Coltrane. Chico and Arturo O'Farrill. Bucky and John Pizzarelli. Max and Maxine Roach. John and Alec Dankworth. Stan and Clark Tracey. Dewey and Joshua Redman. The wonderful Ellis Marsalis and, well, all of his instrument-wielding sons.

The list goes on and on. There are lots of stellar jazz-musician fathers whose sons or daughters have become outstanding jazz musicians themselves.

"Now's the Time." "Yardbird Suite." "Parker's Mood." "Donna Lee." "Ornithology." "Bird Gets the Worm." "Moose the Mooche." "Scrapple from the Apple."

Et cetera! The late bebop saxophonist/composer/bandleader/genius Charlie "Bird" Parker (1920-1955) wrote many tunes that are now regarded as top-notch jazz standards. And if you know modern jazz at all, you surely dig some or all of these very songs.

Edward Kennedy Ellington -- who titled his bestselling autobiography "Music Is My Mistress," and who, as the greatest composer jazz has ever produced, worked as indefatigably as he did brilliantly as a bandleader, pianist, recording artist, and touring performer for more than half a century -- was born April 29, 1899. (He died in 1974.)

Oh, and this band called The Beatles visited America for the first time and changed the course of civilization.
