“Music is your own experience, your thoughts, your wisdom. If you don’t live it, it won’t come out of your horn. They teach you there’s a boundary line to music. But, man, there’s no boundary line to art.” — Charlie Parker
I am amazed by the dazzling and maniacal music of Charlie Parker and his partner Dizzy Gillespie. Who begat who is an irrelevancy, since they suckled the same spirit and tried to turn their black-and-white times into vivid bebop dreams. The square format refers to record packaging, but the format and ragged-stripe detailing may also suggest a vintage vinyl floor tile, perhaps from a nightclub that would have staged this kind of music.
