Bebop - a special jazz style that emerged in the 40th years of XX century and is characterized by fast tempos and difficult florid improvisations based on harping harmony, not melody.
The new style, which emerged as the opposition swing, was formed in the experiments of young musicians at the jam gigs at the club "Minton Play-House" and other places of the district 52nd Street in New York. Bebop was the first style of modern jazz, who boldly left the sphere of popular music and took a step toward "pure" art. It was promoted to the field of interest boperov classical music.
Alto saxophonist Charlie Parker, trumpeters Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, drummer Kenny Clarke, pianists Thelonious Monk and Bud Powell... Many great musicians created their music in the style of bebop. And it's not easy music for understanding. But bi-bop melodies performed Oleg Kireev and his wonderful ensemble by reveal his caustic charm so natural that leave no one indifferent.
