Considered one of the most influential jazz musicians ever (1920-1955), Parker and Dizzy Gillespie helped develop Bebop as a reaction against the prevalent swing music of the period. His personal life was not as successful-plagued by troubles which included drugs and alcohol and suicide attempts. Vintage glossy 8 x 10 Herman Leonard photo of Parker performing on stage in New York City in 1949, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To Visoilo, Best wishes, Charlie Parker." Reverse bears several collector's notations in Portuguese. In very good to fine condition, with scattered light creasing, and light surface impressions to the upper right corner from the notations on the back. Scarce in any size photo, Parker's autograph rates among the rarest of all jazz signatures.
