2017 EU reissue on coloured vinyl LP = Legendary jazz saxophonist and composer Charlie Parker (1920-1955) is considered one of the most influential musicians in the history of jazz, one of the founders of the beepop style. He began his career as a saxophonist in local bands, performing in jazz clubs in and around Kansas City. In 1939, the musician moved to New York, where he worked for a long time in a duet with trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie.
