Jazz history has of course been told by the musicians who’ve created it. Some of those musician have recorded the story of a style, or a time, or a town. Some of those musicians have redefined an instrument, a song, a style.

Certain musicians transcend all the above. Very few musicians fly higher than Charlie Parker, and you’d be hard pressed to name more than 2-3 other musicians whose influence over jazz music has loomed larger than that of Parker’s

Strip away the myths, the tragedy, the legend, and you have this music; ample proof that Parker deserves the hallowed space he occupies.

This collection is, in many ways, simply a history of jazz as we know it.
