Charlie Parker Fake Book Software
To Be Is To Bop
There is not a lot that needs to be said about Charlie “Yardbird” Parker.
Considered by most to be the father of modern jazz.
His influence is still felt far and wide and his compositions are still required repertoire if you are going to play jazz.
His take on the blues progression is a complete education in itself.
Songs, Solos & Sessions
The Dial, Savoy and Verve recording sessions resulted in Charlie Parker’s most recognizable songs and solos.
Songs like Blues For Alice, Now’s The Time, Billie’s Bounce, Donna Lee, Au Privave, Ornithology and Confirmation have become “Must Know” jazz standards that have been recorded again and again by almost every well known jazz musician. They are truly a rite of passage into the world of jazz.
Our Charlie Parker Fake Book Software program for Windows, Mac and Plugin versions brings you a wide assortment of 60 original compositions by Charlie Parker and his solos from those recording sessions.

It doesn’t end there though. We have also include three variations of the original recordings.
The first set is the recordings at regular speed. Watch out though, Bird could blow the doors off the place at tremendous tempos.
For the second set we’ve also included each recording at half speed. So not only are the fast songs more easily learned, you’ll be able to really dig into the amazingly delicate phrasing nuances of his ballad playing.
You’ll find out about the 3rd variation when you read about one of the bonuses below!

60 Half Speed Recordings
Because bebop is frequently played at extreme tempos, we thought it would be helpful to render the original recordings at half speed in order for you to be able to catch every note .
An added benefit of half speed recordings is to be able to put the ballads under the microscope and really emulate and internalize his velvety smooth phrasing and articulation – no matter what instrument you play.
