The estate of alto saxophonist and jazz revolutionary Charlie Parker is now in the hands of Jampol Artist Management.

JAM Inc. plans to introduce Parker’s trailblazing music—he was the key progenitor of bebop in the 1940s—to new audiences; celebrate his importance as an early “superstar soloist” of modern music; and bring the extraordinary, inspirational and heartbreaking story of the man known as Bird to new platforms.

“Our attorneys, Sindee Levin and Albert "Sonny" Murray, have done great work for us the past couple of years and played a very important role introducing us to Jeff Jampol and other important initiatives for Charlie Parker's estate,” said Abraham Daniel, administrator of the Estate of Charlie Parker. “We look forward to working on some great projects that will share Bird's story and music with a new generation of fans.”

Parker’s story was told in the 1988 Clint Eastwood film Bird. The most recent book on Parker was Stanley Crouch’s Kansas City Lightning, published in 2014. Parker died in 1955 at the age of 34.

Jampol Artist Management, which has long overseen The Doors and Janis Joplin, recently signed up The Mamas & The Papas.
