Charlie Parker was arguably one of the most influential jazz musicians to have ever lived. This text presents numerous jazz lines in Charlie's style, grouped by their application in a given harmonic content. Students will learn to connect lines to play over ii-V-I progressions, turnarounds and other harmonic frameworks. To facilitate proficiency in all twelve keys, each section of the book has a chordal play-along that modulates around the circle of fourths. Some of the techniques used in the Charlie Parker style will also be discussed with examples provided. This will help musicians analyze each of the ideas presented, further ensuring their mastery.
