Charlie Parker Scrapple from the Apple 1952 (Jam Session Version) Solo Transcription
This is an extended jam session recording of Bird's playing thanks to Norman Granz's passion for documenting jazz performance. Recorded in Washington, DC in 1952, this recording shows what Parker can do when duration isn't a factor. It features a TON of great vocabulary in concert F Major (D on the alto) and even shows the kind of ideas Bird comes up with when trading fours with a drummer. Such an amazing cut!
