He picked up a used tenor sax and taught himself to play and then entered the Julis Hart School of Music in Hartford. With his best friend, he went to New York to watch him audition for Tommy Dorsey's band in the late s. Dad didn't even bring his sax. Dorsey was walking his friend out of the audition when he heard these jazz riffs coming from the hall.
In a post earlier this year, we showcased one of the few known sound films of Charlie Parker performing live. Above, we have another very rare clip, from , with Parker, young upstart alto, trading lines with veteran tenor Coleman Hawkins. Parker looks characteristically cool between the distinguished poise of Hawkins and the boyish exuberance of natural bandleader Buddy Rich who, in the second tune, exudes much goofy enthusiasm as he destroys the snare drum.

Charles Parker Jr. August 29, — March 12, , also known as Yardbird and Bird , was an American jazz saxophonist and composer. Parker was a blazingly fast virtuoso, and he introduced revolutionary harmonic ideas including rapid passing chords, new variants of altered chords, and chord substitutions. His tone ranged from clean and penetrating to sweet and somber. Parker acquired the nickname "Yardbird" early in his career on the road with Jay McShann. Parker was an icon for the hipster subculture and later the Beat Generation , personifying the jazz musician as an uncompromising artist and intellectual rather than just an entertainer. Parker began playing the saxophone at age 11, and at age 14 he joined his high school band where he studied under Bandmaster Alonzo Lewis.
