b. 5 Might 1925, Youngstown, Ohio, USA, d. 1957. Elevated in Chicago from the vaudeville work Butterbeans And Susie, Parker progressed into an all-round entertainer focusing on singing and dance, and his effective tone of voice lent itself well to blues shouting. Documenting with trumpeter Ruler Kolax for Columbia Information in 1948, he found the eye of band innovator Lionel Hampton, and documented as the second option’s blues vocalist for Decca Information and MGM Information over the following 3 years, covering lots of the best US R&B strikes of your day (‘Consuming Wines, Spo-Dee-O-Dee’, ‘For You My Like’, ‘Merry Xmas Baby’, and ‘I Nearly Lost My Brain’). Through the Hampton years, Parker documented classes in his personal name for Aladdin Information, Spire and Peacock, generally having a contingent through the then-current Hampton orchestra. Later on sessions were documented in the middle-50s for Brunswick Information, Ultima and Hitts, and Parker continuing to tour sporadically with Hampton. In 1957, Hampton brought Parker to European countries, and it had been while touring France that he became significantly ill and passed away.
