Gene were a British rock band that rose to prominence in the mid-1990s. Formed in 1993, they were popularly labelled as a Britpop band and often drew comparisons to the Smiths because of their Morrissey-esque lead singer, Martin Rossiter. Gene's music was influenced by the Jam, the Smiths, the Style Council and the Clash.
Charlie was a British rock band that was formed in 1971 by singer/songwriter Terry Thomas. The group was most active as a recording unit from the mid-1970s through 1986. Charlie never charted in their home country, but had four minor hits in the US: 1977's "Turning To You"; 1978's "She Loves to Be In Love"; 1979's "Killer Cut" and 1983's "It's Inevitable". The band was briefly called "Charlie Cuckoo" (after a racehorse), but soon became known simply as "Charlie".
The Charlie Parker Big Band ? Not something that many are familiar with, but it is a wonderful collection of sides featuring Bird's brilliance as always. By the time of the third and last session for the material on Charlie Parker Big Band the strings have gone and it is a far fuller sounding band that includes Oscar Peterson on piano, Bill Harris on Trombone, Flip Phillips on tenor saxophone and the inevitable Ray Brown on bass. Just check out ‘Night and Day’ and while the setting is easily recognisable, Bird imbues the whole thing with originality and flair. Perhaps the highlight from this session is ‘I Can’t Get Started’ which in Bird’s hands takes on a lustre that is totally beguiling
Artist Biography by Scott Yanow. Gene Roland played many instruments during his career but was most significant as an arranger/composer and for his association with Stan Kenton. Roland, who gained a degree in music from North Texas State Teacher's College, first hooked up with Kenton in 1944, playing fifth trumpet and contributing arrangements. After leading a giant rehearsal band in 1950 that included Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, Roland wrote for Kenton 1951 and Woody Herman from 1956-58, for whom he contributed 65 arrangements. In addition to writing an entire album for Kenton, Roland led his 1950 rehearsal band on a Spotlite release ( Parker is one of his sidemen), led half of an album (recorded in 1957 and 1959) for Dawn in which he plays trumpet and arranged a 1963 octet record for Brunswick.
Gene Roland, Gene M Roland September 15, 1921 in Dallas – August 11, 1982 in New York City was a jazz composer and musician who played many instruments during. Artie Shaw After leading a giant rehearsal band in 1950 that included Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker, Roland wrote for Kenton in 1951, Dan Terry in 1954, and Woody Herman from 1956–58, for whom he contributed 65 arrangements Roland was a major force in Kenton's mellophonium band of the early 1960s, not only writing for the ensemble but performing as. one of the mellophoniums; he also occasionally doubled on soprano sax with the orchestra. Gene Roland provided the robust vocal on "Hawaiian Teenage Girl" composed by Bob Bertram, issued on a 49th State Record Company as 45 rpm.
Best known as simply 'Bird' (a shortening of 'Yardbird', Parker acquired the nickname early in his career with many contradictory stories regarding the name's origin). Widely considered to be one of the most influential of jazz saxophonists, jazz musicians, and indeed musicians in general. Not to be confused with the violinist, Charles Parker. com, Bookogs, jazzdisco.
Parker's quintet, featuring an increasingly poised and mature Miles Davis, and in Max Roach a drummer who could anticipate the saxophonist's most unexpected rhythmic detours, was perhaps his finest and most flexible band. But when Parker returned to New York after his Camarillo release, the dealers were waiting. Parker's separation from Dial was also marked by another milestone. With the collection Bird Blows the Blues, Russell released the first ever 33rpm long-playing jazz record (yet to be dubbed an "album"), and in including alternate takes on the second side, established another first that started the jazz buff's favourite hobby of comparing the fascinating minutiae of solos. The album Charlie Parker With Strings was one of the most successful of his career, which alienated some hardcore fans, who saw it as a sell-out, despite Parker's opinion that it was one of his best.
