bird - The Life and Music of Charlie Parker


188 pgs.
University of Illinois Press, Publ.

With in-depth research into previously overlooked sources, Chuck Haddix corrects much of the misinformation and myth about Bird, chronicling his trials and triumphs: his struggles in Kansas City; his collaboration with Dizzy Gillespie that led to the development of bebop; his incarceration in the California State Mental Hospital; his stormy relationship with his fourth wife, Chan; the death of his daughter, Pree, and his untimely death at 34.
