This Compendium of the Music and Life of Charlie Parker by Lawrence O. Koch focuses primarily on Parker's music. Every record date is dealt with in detail. The work includes over two hundred musical illustrations with accompanying biographical material. The "Bird Stories" are all here--from Parker's Kansas City roots to his untimely death--and the recordings, viewed this way, seem to absorb the aroma of the turbulent jazz nights of the 1940s and early '50s.
