Gillespie was clear-sighted about Parker’s role as a catalyst: “I would say that my major contribution was in the field of harmonics and rhythm.

Charlie Parker’s phrasing, which I think was the most important part of the music, anyway... [Players based in NYC] had all our rhythm and our harmonies already, and then Charlie Parker came on the scene demonstrating how it could be done. And then all of us fell in behind that.”
