Description


Considered one of the most influential jazz musicians ever, 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. Handwritten receipt, signed “Charlie Parker,” on an off-white 4 x 2 slip, dated June 28, 1951. Parker writes, in full: “Club 421. Received Twenty-five dollars as advance ($25.00).” Matted with a glossy photo of Parker on stage, to an overall size of 15 x 14.75. In very good condition, with staple holes to top, scattered creases and wrinkles, mild toning, and show-through and surface impressions from writing on reverse. Parker always seemed in need of quick cash, and at times would take advances on payments for his shows. Charlie Parker's signature is without question the rarest and most sought after in all of Jazz. Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
