BBC Review Bates’s ‘Bird’ music is alternately seductive and sardonic, dreamy and dangerous.Kevin Le Gendre 2010Charlie Parker is the great warrior soloist of jazz history, one of the progenitors of bebop, whence came the harmonic trickery and acrobatic improvisations that altered the course of the music in the mid 1940s and still provide essential tools for modernists chipping away at today creative coalface.There is another portrait of Parker that can be drawn, though: the balladeer, the romantic, the purveyor of music for lovers.

Now the living room has three separate networks established, each one made up of devices that know the address of transmitters it should listen to and the address of receivers it should talk to. Since each network is changing the frequency of its operation thousands of times a second, it’s unlikely that any two networks will be on the same frequency at the same time. A speakerphone that lets you either listen or talk, but not both, is an example of half duplex communication, while a regular telephone handset is a full duplex device.
