Charlie Parker’s Gravesite and Inverted Mordent

Dear all,

I’ve finally got some free time to post some information about Charlie Parker’s grave-site & pictures of Parker’s gravestone in a new article in Bebop Cookbook series: Charlie Parker’s Grave & Inverted Mordent in Bebop Improvisation.  There have been some discussions regarding the appropriateness of the inscribed saxophone in Parker’s gravestone (some claimed that it looked more like a tenor saxophone).  So check out the photo to judge for yourself:-)  Biographical Outline of Charlie Parker’s Life, also newly added into Bebop Cookbook, is a bit longer than the timeline-format initially planned.  I sincerely hope that these articles will be somewhat useful to some of you.
