A stunning one-of-a-kind biography of Charlie Parker. Written entirely in trimeter, the epic biogrpahical poem dances nimbly along in a way that echoes Bird's blazing, fast-fingered solos. Gray's marvelous use of language reflects the rhythms of jazz and the beat that lies at the heart of bebop. Indeed, Blues for Bird is like a piece of jazz itself: exciting, innovative and constantly surprising.
