Charlie Parker’s “She Rote”, often (ever since the liner notes on the original Verve LP) stated as being based on “Out of Nowhere,” is actually based on the chords of “Beyond the Blue Horizon.” The relative obscurity of that tune as a jazz standard -- no bebopper ever played it to my knowledge-- along with the furious tempo of Bird’s superb performance, has caused it to be generally overlooked as the source for “She Rote,” which careful listening will definitely indicate has no relation to “Out of Nowhere” -- a tune Bird frequently recorded elsewhere though never at this tempo or for that matter, in this key (Bb). As he often did, Bird resurrected a hitherto neglected standard and made brilliant use of it!

There is some resemblance, but it's not the same changes. The 1st and 3rd eights sound closer to Bye Bye Blues, to me.

Astute commentary!

Swedish Schnapps (The Genius of Charlie Parker, volume 8) (MG V-8010) is a Charlie Parker compilation album, released by Verve Records, compiling recordings made by two different groups, on two different dates in 1951.[3] The tracks had previously been released as 78rpm singles, and the master takes had previously appeared on the 1955 Clef Records LP The Magnificent Charlie Parker (MG C-646).[4][5]

The two sessions feature either Max Roach or Kenny Clarke on drums. The January 17 1951 session features Miles Davis on trumpet, who had made many recordings as part of Parker's band in 1946 and 1947. This recording session was the same day as Davis' own first recording session for his new label, Prestige Records, which he would complete later the same day.[6]
