W. T. Hornaday | San Diego, CA USA | 07/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a compilation of some of Bird's very best work, for Dial Records, from 2/46 - 12/47. Content-wise, it is very close to "The Complete Dial Sessions 1946-47", but minus all the outtakes (and at about half the price). If you just want to listen to the music rather than analyze and compare, buy this one. Much of Bird's work has been recompiled and reissued. This release, and "Complete", mentioned above, are probably the best selections from the Dial material."
Bird Rules!

"Unbelievable. No one has written commentary on this collection - and Bird is one of four or five most important and influential figures in American musical history! I look at the biggest sellers in Amazon's alto sax section and I see a host of players who aren't worth the spit Parker left in his horn. Good grief people, learn something about the evolution of this music and listen. Parker possessed the most incredible technique and blues sense and a mode of expression which is overwhelming - he will never be matched!"
