Kevin Sun transcriptions of Charlie Parker solos

Keven Sun has posted two long articles on Bird at his website, A Horizontal Search. Charlie Parker on Confirmation 1949-51 is a fascinating story told through transcriptions, source recordings, and detailed commentary. Charlie Parker on Fine and Dandy 1947-1953 is a long good look – also with transcriptions, recordings and comments – at all extant recordings of Bird’s playing on that standard tune.

As usual, Sun’s transcriptions are expertly laid out and very accurate. Dig in!
