Summary
Charlie Parker was a legendary alto saxophonist, combo leader, and composer. Beginning in the mid-'40s in New York City, he worked with trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie and pianist Thelonious Monk, among others, to create a new style of jazz that would become known as bebop. His dazzling technique, lightning speed, innovative solos, and sharp tone were all emulated by younger players. His tragic death due to drug abuse led him to become a legendary figure in the jazz world - another young, creative player cut down in his prime. This book gathers all of the interviews ever given by Parker during his lifetime, plus early reviews, memoirs, and articles that give an overview of one of the most important lives and careers in jazz
