The Bird

Charlie Parker (aka Bird or Yardbird) is one of the greatest, most important saxophone players of the 20th century and had a crucial role in the development of bebop and the saxophone as an instrument in jazz. He didn't live to be very old (he was only 35 when he died) but he made a vast amount of recordings and I'm more than happy to share some of my favorite ones with me beloved followers. No seriously, I love you guys.

EDIT: there's a movie about Charlie Parker called 'Bird'. I really recommend it! Thanks to cool_cicler for reminding me!
