Charlie Parker released both singles and albums, which included those singles along with other cuts, throughout his career. He won Grammy Hall of Fame awards for four of his releases, two singles and two albums.

In 1945, Parker recorded the single, "Billie's Bounce" on the Savoy label. It was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2002.

The single "Ornithology" was recorded in 1946 on the Dial label. It was entered into the Hall of Fame in 1989.

The "Charlie Parker with Strings" album was cut in 1950 on the Mercury label and placed in the Hall of Fame in 1988.

The "Jazz at Massey Hall" album was recorded in 1953 on the Debut label and entered into the Hall of Fame in 1995.

His legacy lives on in the music he created and the unanswered questions of what else he could have done if he had followed a different lifestyle.
