Quasimodo was written by Charlie Parker. It is based on the changes of "Embraceable You". Without "Bird", there would be no modern jazz as we know it. "Bird" (and Dizzy Gillespie) changed the way swing musicians thought about harmony to usher in the "Bebop" Era. I decided to play it in a very straight manner, just stating the line and soloing.
