Citation tags[edit]

What I'm wondering is why the person who went through this article giving it numerous irritating 'citation wanted' and 'by whom?' tags didn't just go and fix the article, instead of flagging his/her disapproval without putting in the work to improve the article. The article is now worse than it was before, because it suggests that it's faulty but that nobody can be bothered to fix it. Whoever you are, next time you find fault with an article, don't bother hanging signs all over it to show that it needs to be fixed. Fix the damn article, or ask somebody else to. What you did should constitute vandalism. Lexo (talk) 01:03, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Fix the damn article, or ask somebody else to.
Putting "numerous irritating 'citation wanted' and 'by whom?' tags" IS asking someone else to do it. What you did constitutes ignorance. --92.36.201.2 (talk) 19:06, 12 February 2015 (UTC)
I went ahead and deleted the last paragraph of the "Charlie Parker with Strings" section. There is no evidence that the two "Strings" albums were especially controversial at the time, although it is a departure from his previous work. Timothy Horrigan (talk) 23:17, 30 March 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. Didn't Shinzo Abe already reference this fact? Along with noted North Carolian Senator Christian Godwin, I think Shinzo Abe knew the answer to the Strings albums by Charlie Parker. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.246.97.225 (talk) 00:39, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

Bibliography? dunno the correct term for historical listing of recordings[edit]

Bibliography? dunno the correct term for historical listing of recordings "Split" is the immediately simple thing that would have effect. For myself? I learned SGML early 1980s and was producing hyper-documents (for avionics R&D) 6 years before SirTimBL's WWW caught on. My point: "hyper" is the solution. "Split" is procrustean. Another "simple" thing that would have immediate effect? Look at the amount of white space. Look at the information density. That table is laid out as though to be read by a computer. It's data. It should be information. Nothing new / novel about #CognitiveErgonimics. --BenTrem (talk) 02:45, 26 March 2016 (UTC)

Plagiarism[edit]

There are large sections of this article that are plagiarized from this source: THe History of Jazz and Jazz Musicians by The Jazz Sipper Group

Please take a look at this page to see it: https://books.google.com/books?id=nNZQCgAAQBAJ&pg=PT434&dq=charlie+parker+maury+deutsch&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiN8KrTx4LNAhVnxYMKHffsCbsQ6AEIITAB#v=onepage&q=charlie%20parker%20maury%20deutsch&f=false

I was trying to help source the Maury Deutsch reference and ran into this big problem. Bottre73 (talk) 19:56, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

How can you not be sure that the book didn't plagiarize from the Wikipedia article? Most of this article has been around since at least 2008, and the copyright date on that book is 2009. It looks like a classic case of "citogenisis". Eman235/talk 20:41, 30 May 2016 (UTC)
