Charlie Parker and Thematic Improvisation (Studies in Jazz, No. 24)
by Henry Martin
Book Description: Martin provides a new overall assessment of the importance of Charlie Parker through an analysis of his improvisations in a variety of genres. Earlier studies of Parker argue that his style is based on an extensive network of melodic formulas that are combined to create solos. Because the same formulas appear throughout his improvisations regardless of the theme, these studies concluded that the solos do not usually relate to the original melodies. "Charlie Parker and Thematic Improvisation" provides a much-needed reassessment by showing that Parker's solos are often related to the original themes in unexpected and sometimes ingenious ways. The conclusion sums up features of Parker's style and discusses his contribution in the context of Western music history. Numerous transcriptions are provided. This groundbreaking technical study will be of interest to musicologists and serious students of jazz.

Yardbird Suite : A Compendium of the Music and Life of Charlie Parker
Lawrence O. Koch
Book Description: Revised Edition. Bebop saxophonist Charlie "Yardbird" Parker (1920-1955), a man of extremes in his personal life, was a disciplined musical genius who expanded and transformed the boundaries of jazz. In this revised and updated edition of Yardbird Suite, Lawrence O. Koch fuses musical, discographical, and biographical analysis to thoroughly examine the evolution of Parker's innovative music.

Richly illustrated with extensive musical notations, this in-depth study of hundreds of works in the Parker discography takes into account newly discovered recordings and CD reissues. Koch meticulously documents each recording session and provides an array of musical details on theme structure, key, chords, distinguishing phrases, and performance format. Comprehensive biographical material-including the "Bird stories" of Parker's eccentric behavior, sexual appetite, drug addiction, and compulsive drinking-is interwoven with the musical analysis to fully illuminate both the man and the musician.

This volume will appeal to Bird fans, jazz buffs, and musicologists alike, and it will make an essential companion for listeners of Charlie Parker's superb recordings.
