Anthropology Composition

"Anthropology" (also known as "Thriving from a Riff" or "Thriving on a Riff") is a bebop-style jazz composition written by Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie.[] It is a contrafact, being based on the harmony of "I Got Rhythm".[1]

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.[1] The other musicians were trumpeter Miles Davis, pianist Argonne Thornton, bassist Curley Russell, and drummer Max Roach.[1]
