LOVERMAN CHARLIE PARKER PDF

Over most of the next two years, the saxophonist produced many of the recordings that came to be regarded as his own best work, and some of the most remarkable jazz improvisation and back-of-an-envelope composing ever committed to disc. Russell eventually became Parker's biographer, with the highly-readable but not always strictly accurate Bird Lives! They also span the extremes of Parker's emotional climate and physical resources, from the incoherent but impassioned soliloquy of Lover Man recorded when the exhausted and addicted saxophonist could barely stand, let alone play to the astonishing fertility and energy of classic performances like Ornithology, Moose The Mooche, and Yardbird Suite. The latter recordings came early in the Dial years, in the spring of , and indicate how completely Parker had mastered his craft.

Over most of the next two years, the saxophonist produced many of the recordings that came to be regarded as his own best work, and some of the most remarkable jazz improvisation and back-of-an-envelope composing ever committed to disc.

The latter recordings came early in the Dial years, in the spring of , and indicate how completely Parker had mastered his craft. His technique flawlessly adapted to the dazzling speed with which he could improvise fresh melody, change accents and rhythmic emphases from chorus to chorus, and hook together startling new lines from his voluminous mental library of phrases and themes. Here's the master take of Ornithology, with a year-old Davis on trumpet.

Parker was surrounded by inventive musicians in this period, but he sometimes sounded as if he could deliver an entire sermon on the possibilities of the new bebop form all by himself. A famous example of how much music Bird could pack into the most briefly-glimpsed of opportunities is his unaccompanied passage after the theme statement of A Night in Tunisia, a mesmerising fragment simply credited in the jazz annals as the Famous Alto Break.

But in July , Parker's heroin habit and chaotic lifestyle caught up with him. The drug was harder to find in Los Angeles, and the saxophonist had drunk a quart of whisky before the July session as an alternative, with Russell holding him upright at the microphone for the Lover Man recording.

But if Parker's playing doesn't have its usual fluency and uncanny symmetry, its unsteadiness and fragility express different truths — the great composer Charles Mingus thought this performance was magnificent, for all its flaws. That night, Parker wandered around his hotel lobby naked, set fire to his mattress, was arrested and committed to the Camarillo State Mental hospital. When he emerged — clean — after six months, he recorded the track Relaxin' at Camarillo in ironic reference to the experience.

But, back in New York, Parker didn't stay relaxed for long, as we'll see next time.

I don't know why but I'm feeling so sad I long to try something I never had Never had no kissin' Oh, what I've been missin' Lover man, oh, where can you be? For years, the scene has been misinterpreted so often that now it is taken for read that Juliet is looking for her lover man. The language of the time meant something different. It goes like this:.
