He hoboed his way east from Kansas City, his demeanor unpolished and his solo style brilliant yet frantic. It took a couple of stabs at the Apple before he settled in; he and his fellow Harlem-based innovators took some time getting used to each other. But by the mid-Forties, Charlie Parker, New York, and bebop were popping. In no more than a decade of small-group explorations in clubs and on records, Parker established the greatest musical revolution in jazz since Louis Armstrong's innovations of the mid-Twenties. Parker's unprecedented virtuosity on alto saxophone enabled him to create three-minute masterpieces seemingly spontaneously and at will. By the time of his death, his influence had spread way beyond his instrument and jazz, to the point where he had become an icon of twentieth-century creativity.
