Anthropology (composition)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Anthropology" (also known as "Thriving from a Riff" or "Thriving on a Riff") is a bebop-style jazz composition that is credited to Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.[1] Parker stated in 1949 that Gillespie had played no part in its writing, and that others had added the trumpeter as co-composer.[1]

It is a contrafact, being based on the harmony of "I Got Rhythm".[2] The first recording of the composition, then known as "Thriving from a Riff", was made on November 26, 1945, by an ensemble led by Parker.[2] The other musicians were trumpeter Miles Davis, pianist Argonne Thornton, bassist Curley Russell, and drummer Max Roach.[2]
