Yardbird Suite

"Yardbird Suite" is a bebop standard composed by Charlie Parker in 1946.[1][2][3] It follows an AABA form. The Charlie Parker Septet's 1946 recording of the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2014.[4]

It was used as the title of Lawrence O. Koch's biography of Parker.[5]

The song was recorded by Chaka Khan in 1982 as part of the "Be Bop Medley" from her album Chaka Khan.

"Yardbird Suite" also refers to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada's jazz club, named for Charlie Parker's song of the same title.

See Charlie Parker's Savoy and Dial Sessions for recording information.
