Charlie Parker modified the bearing of jazz as much as Louis Armstrong had done two decades previously. He stepped forward as the greatest soloist in the new music for which he invented the rules and vocabulary in the early 1940's. He had a genius for disengaging himself from traditional harmonies and rhythms, renewing melodies through use of unexpected accentuations.
