AUTHOR

Russell, Ross

SUMMARY

"Inspired by great affection and dedication, Bird Lives! provides a vivid and accurate picture not only of the saxophonist-composer as artist and human being but of his zeitgeist and the musical/social setting that produced him. Parker was an immensely complex personality; saint and satyr, loving father and footloose vagabond, with a limitless appetite for sex, music, food, pills, heroin, liquor, life. A man of vast influence, the most admired and imitated creator of the mid-1940s bop revolution, he was forced to work in dives, reduced to bumming dollars when he should have been respected as a reigning virtuoso...A sensitive, penetrating portrait."Russell, Ross is the author of 'Bird Lives! The High Life and Hard Times of Charlie (Yardbird) Parker' with ISBN 9780306806797 and ISBN 0306806797.
