Parker was the first jazz saxophonist I REALLY started listening to after being introduced to his music through my HS jazz band (we played a big band arrangement of Now's The Time, with part of his solo as a soli with the whole sax section). I'm sure that's cliche for an altoist, but he really casts that large of a shadow over the horn.

While it's not a GREAT movie and takes some liberties, I still enjoyed Bird.

That's the thing that makes Bird truly special was his sheer KNOWLEDGE of music. His understanding of theory is absolutely mindboggling.
