Jazz saxophonist Charlie Parkerís pioneering work explored in new book

Diving into the aesthetics, history and philosophy of his output.

Jazz saxophonist and composer Charlie Parkerís entire oeuvre is being examined in a new book, called Charlie Parker, Composer, published via Oxford University Press this April.

Parker began playing as a teenager after being gifted a second-hand alto sax by his mother.

Alongside his pioneering solo bebop excursions, he also collaborated with artists including Miles Davis and trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie.

Parkerís experimentations began as he found himself ďgetting bored with the stereotyped changes that were being used all the time at the time.Ē

While Parker remains known as an improviser, Henry Martinís Charlie Parker, Composer shines a light on his more structured jazz compositions, contextualizing them against the rise of the early bebop style.

The book also focuses on Parkerís early musical training, and includes reproductions of four of Parkerís copyright submissions to the Library of Congress.

Head here for more info in advance of Charlie Parker, Composerís 16th April publication, and check out the cover below.
