The first answer here said hip hop (rapping to electronic backup), but hip hop was developed in the '80s, 30 years after Charlie Parker died. Actually, Charlie Parker is known for helping develop bebop, which is a type of jazz that emerged in the '40s with complex harmonies and rhythms. Thelonius Monk and Dizzy Gillespie also were big innovators of bebop.
