Charlie Parker – Saxophone Master – Bird – Studio Recordings on this day – Yardbird Becomes A Legend On This Day in History

Charlie Parker in 1947

Bird – Yardbird –

Charlie Parker …

Whatever they called him. On this day in history, he made his first studio recordings in Dallas and the world of music was never the same.

In 1941 Charlie Parker makes a side in his first commercial recording session in Dallas, TX for Decca Records. Playing the alto sax, he solos on the tunes ‘Swingmatism’ and ‘Hootie Blues’ as a member of Jay McShann’s orchestra.

Bird goes on to help create a new form of jazz known as Bebop … and music was never the same after that …
