Charlie Parker Lick

by JazzMaverick (Dec 08, 2008)

This is a great lick, and hopefully you all know how much of a legend Charlie Parker really is. He's the one who started Bebop, was originally a terrible player, and none of the Jazz musicians would play with him, so he sat in his room for hours on end (12 at least) practiced and studied like crazy until he became the legend he's known as today.

There's more to it, so if you're interested; I recommend watching the video based on his life called "Bird" (because that's his nickname).

Anyway, this lick is from Anthropology, truly an amazing track.
