Hi All,

I am currently writing my postgrad dissertation on Charlie Parker, and was wondering if I could ask for some help from the community.

I'm doing a transcription project on Bir's Blues solos, and was wondering if anyone could suggest to me the very first blues recording by Bird that they know of. This would be a massive help, as I'm hoping to analyse how his style evolved over the years.

Any help you could offer would be massively appreciated.

Thanks so much everyone!

Love!

Well here is what looks to me like a fairly good discography. http://www.jazzdisco.org/charlie-parker/discography/

But surely a postgrad can find this on his/her own, no? Am I missing something?

There are several blues there from 1940 and 1941 and i presume he solos at least once or twice if not on every one. Do you have those recordings? If not, I guess it's a good place to start.

And here's the recording you need: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Early-Bird-..._shvl_album_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1322261552&sr=301-4

That took about 5 minutes.

There's a CD set called Charlie Parker: A Studio Chronicle 1940-1948 available from Amazon etc. There are also some home recordings that were discussed on SOTW recently.
