This is another one where I don't think I need to tell you jazz fans about what this chapter is named after, because it's such a popular tune.
In any case, for all of you who don't know Bird, this chapter is named after Charlie Parker's 1946 tune, "Confirmation", which is widely regarded as one of the most complex jazz standards, using lots of rapid chord changes, requiring dexterous fingering to play properly.

Anyway, listen to Bird's incredible performance of it here:

And once you've done that, check out this awesome version by Theo Jackson, recorded in 2011, featuring some great vocals and scatting:
