"A tribute . . . to Parker's gift and grief. Giddins gives the man his due." -Los Angeles Times "A major contribution to jazz biography . . . has the verve and adrenaline of its subject matter." -Ishmael Reed "Since his death in 1955, myth-makers have sounded the bebop battle cry-Bird Lives!-but Giddins is the first biographer to make it sound true." -Village Voice "As penetrating a character study of Bird as any yet written." -New York Times "Giddins writes with something like Bird's bravado. . . . [Parker] can practically be heard ripping through `Cherokee' and stewing over `Koko' straight off the pages of this book." -L. A. Weekly
