Bird Lives- the end all and be all site for Bird lovers

If you love Charlie Parker then you have to check out the Bird Lives web site.

This site from the UK is the most complete source of information about the great innovator. Along with all the biographical information there are interviews, including a Downbeat blindfold test, MP3s of live concerts and radio shows, galleries of photographs, streaming videos of TV shows, 53 downloadable transcriptions, links and much more.

The authors says of the site,"Ultimately, this site hopes to offer a concise and accurate account of Bird's life and work in order to correct much misinformation currently available in literature and on the internet."

Someone once said there are only two forms of Jazz; before Charlie Parker and after Charlie Parker.
