Charlie Parker, BeBop extraordinaire.
BeBop was a reaction to a lot of jazz music being appropriated
by people that weren't really taking the time to understand
what they were hearing and trying to play.
BeBop refused to be appropriated...
But sampling that shit is a-okay!
I'm glad we're still able to remember the greats
in a time when the Internet makes something released
yesterday seem like it's irrelevant after two listens.
