The Story Of Charlie Parker’s ‘Ko Ko’

The fabulous thing about ‘Ko Ko’ and Parker’s music is that the second time you listen to it — and the third and the fourth and the fifth — the more you listen to it, as you really get to know it, you realize that it isn’t just a bunch of noise… It isn’t just a bunch of incredibly fast notes. It’s all melody.
