For the fiftieth anniversary of Charlie Parker's death, I am commemorating him by gathering a collection of over sixty of his original compositions for Hal Leonard Corporation.

The Bird Book constitutes one of the best learning tools for jazz improvisers. Each performance was carefully chosen for its high level of content, meticulously transcribed, and edited. His compositions can be classified into four categories:

1. blues
2. rhythm changes (George Gershwin's I Got Rhythm )
3. common song forms
4. originals

In fact, there are pure improvisation recordings copyrighted as compositions, e.g., Bird of Paradise, etc. The Bird Book is extremely accurate and neat, and is designed, above all, for practical use. Every effort has been made to make it enjoyable to play.
