This is when Charlie Parker ingested bad heroin before having a nervous breakdown. He could barely stand and had to be held up to the microphone by the producer. It is amazing how when he is sick he can still make music like this

Thom Young

He could not get heroin because he did not have any connections in Los Angeles, so he drank to take the edge off and he showed up drunk while also going through heroin withdrawal.


YouTube censor the response ? Weird, I wrote nothing wrong 😅! I speak about music. We are living in a dangerous and demotature society. Becareful what you say, you’re under the eye of mindcontrol. You can not even speak about drug and poor people…


Where is my last com ?


« Art peppers meet the rythm section » is the most famous example. The guy had a jail permission ‘s records in one day, and back to jail for heroin . His next album call « smack » lol !


It was the same with art pepper and Chet baker and many many musicians, almost all jazz musicians during this periods. Coltran , Rollins… miles, evans,… everybody… Paul Chambers, I can do a list, just everybody.

Me mata la bajadita que mete con ese final mas abajo en el minuto 1.46 hasta el 1.51... Grande Charlie mataría por haberlo conocido y preguntarle cosas... Un saludo desde Buenos Aires para todos los oyentes de la buena música.

+Nicolas Funes Ya leiste El Perseguidor, de tu compatriota Cortázar? un relato de ficcion sobre Bird :)


I think this is one Bird's most emotional playing ever, you can hear and feel the pain and loneliness in his sax sound and phrasing. I love his ballads and tunes with strings, he slows down and allows the sax to fully express the emotion of the song.
