Chan Parker was born in New York City and now lives on a farm in Champmotteux, France. In addition to her many roles in the American jazz scene, she has been a dancer, housewife, lyricist, and writer. She is the author of To Bird with Love.
"Chan Parker's brilliant autobiography gives us an honest and well-written insight into her dramatic life on the American jazz scene in the 1940s and 50s—from the heydays on 52nd Street in New York, to her love affairs with and marriages to Charlie Parker and Phil Woods, to her present life of reflection and solitude in France. Highly recommended reading!"—Jan Horne, Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation
"My Life in E-flat is a remarkable memoir of a woman who witnessed some of the most important movements in the history of jazz."—Bob Edmonds, McCormick Messenger
"Yet this is also a book of much charm and dignity, one that finds a center and a refuge in a world of hurt. Her accounts of Parker, Woods, and other musicians are sharply etched and evocative, and add much to what we know of these masters."—John F. Szwed, Jazziz
