"I hope it makes people buy a Charlie Parker record"
M. Bromberg | Atlanta, GA United States | 09/01/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)
"That quote from Charlie Watts in the liner notes sums up the feeling of this album. This is a warm and wonderful souvenir of Charlie Watts' obsession with Bird and his music, meant as a companion piece to his 1964 children's book, "Ode to a High Flying Bird," and recorded in 1991. Five new songs composed by alto sax player Peter King and two Parker originals ("Bluebird" and "Relaxing at Camarillo") make a short but thoroughly entertaining set of biographical and musical sketches. Unfortunately this is out of print, but the entire suite can be heard performed live (with additional narration and a complete second set of Parker tunes) on "A Tribute to Charlie Parker With Strings." And yes, while this album's fine on its own, it will make you track down the Bird originals!"
