2020 release


Charlie Parker has established himself as one of the greatest creators of jazz, a genius of improvisation. It brought the emotion of the blues to its point of glow. He reinvented the blues, playing on transition chords and reversals to develop new harmonic lines. He had such a powerful breath that he could play louder than the other violists and carry an entire orchestra in its tone. The strength of his genius was coupled with a shadow, an inner tragedy that eventually prevailed prematurely but which imbued his game with a sensibility on the surface that he exalts to the end of emotion, to the end of his own existence.

The complete work produced in the studio by the master of the alto saxophone, inventor of the Be-Bop style. Volumes 1 to 6 chronologically offer the 131 titles of Charlie Parker as a leader; volume 7 offers 23 alternative versions or rare takes; volume 8 brings together the 24 tracks produced in the company of a string orchestra; volume 9 brings together the 25 selections of his Latino repertoire. ; volume 10 brings together the 26 selections in which Charlie Parker acts as a sideman. A set of 229 titles.
