Super excited to review this book! It's the Charlie Parker Omnibook Volume 2!!! 60 new transcriptions of incredible Bird solos to dig into. I've written a much too long review but also put Youtube links to all the solos at the bottom of the review (which took me 2 1/2 hours to find them all.....) You'll hear new licks you never heard Bird play before! Amazing! Enjoy this one!

Thanks for the heads-up, the review, and most of all, the YouTube links. A must have book, I'm really looking forward to going through it.

No problem. It took a lot longer than I thought it would. I think there was 3 or 4 that I couldn't find. I'm hoping someone out there will find them for me.....Haha!

Thanks to a friend in Russia, I added a link to the Hot House and Easy to Love Charlie Parker solos that I couldn't find before. Just find those in the list at the bottom of the review and click on them and you can download those tracks to your computer. Trust me-they are worth downloading.........

How many low G's and A's will I have to hit in the new book, if I'm using tenor? :)

That’s good. My right knee was killing me after playing through those transcriptions.

This is good news.

Charlie Parker is an example of somebody who's done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice. :wink:
