Liner Notes

Charlie Parker

Posted by on Apr 30, 2015

Charlie Parker was born in 1920 and was a highly influential musician who crafted the sound that would become known as Bee Bop. It was a protest against the creeping commercialization that seemed to be taking over the art form in the 30s and the 40s. His addiction to heroine eventually cut his life short.  Photo credit gilad.co.uk.
