Dizzy Gillespie often observed that the new style of modern jazz phrasing he and Charlie Parker (and Thelonious Monk) coined was evolutionary, not revolutionary. But for those hipsters and musicians who encountered Bird and Diz for the first time on small-group arrangements like "Dizzy Atmosphere" and "Shaw 'Nuff," it must have seemed like the sky was falling.
