Once again Youtube’s basic compression can’t handle Bird’s 16th notes. Watch it at 720p for a better experience. Charlie hits some hilariously good phrases i…

    I just happened to be in the mood for some Bird, and then, for some reason,
    I looked him up on Wikipedia and saw that he died 57 years ago today. RIP
    to a great genius!

  2. Andrea Manenti says:

    I think that those notes are the actual notes that he’s playing. (I mean
    that if you wanna play it with an Alto you have to transpose C to Eb ecc..)

  3. Alex Mayweather says:

    i think he does to encourage you to buy the book. and also i think someone
    who can transcribe this probably knows how people read music. so why dont
    you troll somewhere else

    Despite this being music notation, I think anyone can watch this and enjoy
    it 🙂

    I got Miles but couldn’t see Bird (Confirmation)..It’s quite an experience
    watching the actual notes come to life.

    But why is the sheet music in G? I’d like to study the original solo, in F,
    but it’s nowhere to be found T.T

  7. Syd Potter says:

    Whoever creates these needs to realize that people do not read music (or
    words!) in such a compressed visual area. I mean we need to see MORE of the
    notes (or words if we are reading text) in a glance in order to fully
    ‘read’ it. We do not read one note (or letter) at a time but rather in
    GROUPS. Hopefully the author of these little things will read this message
    and correct the next ones he does to make for a much more enjoyable

    I agree with Syd. This would be more valuable to musicians if you could
    see, say four bars at at time. Musicians don’t sight read right on the edge
    like that — or if they do, they get in trouble really fast.

  9. Aj Nester says:

    It’s cool that you keep the focus on one spot. You see what you are hearing
    right at that moment without the eye having to track the music as a
    musician does when reading. One simple thing you might try for the
    musicians who have a hard time with it is to offset the music so that it is
    just behind the visuals. Musicians always have to be reading ahead. These
    things must be a bear to create, though.. Hat’s off to your hard work!!

    I like this animation. I feel like I am seeing the sounds coming out as
    Bird plays. I understand what people are saying when it is moving to fast,
    but I feel as if this is meant more to show the viewer what is coming out
    in the moment. Just like the Synesthetic classical pieces with the colors.
