    Jim Hall has a live recording of Scrapple from the Apple one of my favorite Bird tunes. In the KC.MO Jazz museum there is a white plastic saxophone only played once by Parker on the Massey Hall concert,as an attraction.The price was around 185,000$ out of a 21 mil. budget for the 18th and Vine Jazz museum with a live room called The Blue Room.Every year on Birds birthday they go to his grave and when possible give him a 21 sax salute! The Bird Still Flies!

    Joy Spring is by Clifford Brown I think.

    Bird and Diz largely invented BeBop I think is a fair statement. There were many other fine players but I they stand at the top when bop was the music of the FUTURE!
