Animated Sheet Music: Confirmation and Au Privave by Charlie Parker

Notes appear as jazz music is played in these two Animated Sheet Music videos by Dan Cohen. The sheet music was taken from Charlie Parker – Omnibook: For B-flat Instruments (Jazz Transcriptions). The music itself: Confirmation, above, and Au Privave, below, both by American jazz saxophonist and composer Charlie Parker:

Parker was a highly influential jazz soloist and a leading figure in the development of bebop, a form of jazz characterized by fast tempos, virtuosic technique and advanced harmonies. Parker was a blazingly fast virtuoso, and he introduced revolutionary harmonic ideas including rapid passing chords, new variants of altered chords, and chord substitutions.

Next: Bach, Prelude in C-sharp major, WTC I, BWV 848, animated, Classical Music Mashup: 57 classical tunes from 33 composers, and Dance of Harmony, an animated synesthetic voyage.

Bonus: Jazz Fundamentals: What Is Improvisation? What Are the Blues?
