Parker, Charlie - Milestones of a Legend - 22 Original Albums

Bird lives! This graffiti appeared around New York in the wake of Charlie “Bird” Parker’s death on March 12, 1955 at the age of 34 – and it still holds true today. The altosax- giant, one of the originators of Bebop, invented a method of improvising, which Jazz musicians still use today. His fluent style, the ornithological sound of his alto, and the many Bop-standards he wrote – from “Moose The Mooche” via “Scrapple From the Apple” or “Relaxin at Camarillo” to “Now’s the Time” – made him an icon
of modern Jazz.
This 10 CD-box-set documents the musical life of “Bird” through his original albums, including
many rarities and contemporaries like Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Lester Young, or Thelonious Monk.
The various styles and settings of these recordings – from Latin-Jazz-orchestras to quintets, from studio productions to rare live-recordings – portray Charlie Parker and his outstanding musicality.
Born August 29, 1920 in Kansas City, Parker began playing the saxophone at age 11, and joined his
high school‘s band three years later, practicing up to 15 hours a day on his own. As a teenager, Parker developed a morphine addiction while hospitalized after an automobile accident, and subsequently became addicted to heroin. He continued using heroin throughout his life, and it ultimately contributed to his death at the age of 34.
Moving to New York at the age of 19, it took “Bird” at least six years to be accepted and taken into the “inner circle” of Jazz musicians like Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Thelonious Monk, with whom he established an exciting, new sound called Bebop.
