Charlie Parker, Be-Bop, and chromatic approaches. The study of Parker opens up fascinating doors for the student of bass. There are several Practice Clypse, including DONNA LEE.

that are personal favorites include Yardbird
Suite, Red Cross and Billie's
Bounce or Now's The Time. Donna Lee,
as mentioned, is a major favorite link
between Parker and the Bass, thanks to Jaco and all those who have since paid tribute. See and hear how all twelve notes can be played with a lyrical chromaticism that makes Be-Bop stand above all other types of music.
