Animated Sheet Music For 3 Charlie Parker Jazz Classics: “Confirmation,” “Au Privave” & “Bloomdido”

Courtesy of Dan Cohen‘s Youtube channel Animated Sheet Music, here are Cohen’s animations of “Confirmation,” “Au Privave,” that 1951 bebop standard with the mysteriously un-French French title, and Parker’s 1953 blues “Bloomdido.” Even if you don’t know much about music notation and the forms of jazz of Parker, you’ll likely be gobsmacked by the beautiful bloom of notes appearing before your eyes. “After spending several hours precisely timing Charlie Parker’s eighth and sixteenth notes,” writes Cohen, “I have come to the conclusion that the dude can swing.” A treat from start to finish.
