After Louis Armstrong, probably the best-known and most influential jazz icon is Charlie Parker. In the mid-1940s, Parker was one of the prime movers of the then-controversial style known as bebop--his approach took in influences from the blues and the era's modern classical music, and set the music world on its ear. A four-disc set, BIRD IN TIME is arguably one of the most complete documents of Parker's early career, from playing in big bands (Cootie Williams, Earl Hines) to the groundbreaking small-group recordings with Dizzy Gillespie and Milt Jackson. TIME collects material from a variety of sources--radio broadcasts, studio sessions, and recordings made by amateur collectors--plus, there are assorted short interview segments scattered throughout. This set also includes two booklets of tremendously detailed liner notes, providing a peek at Parker the human being as well as at the social milieu of the 1940s.
