CD Reviews

Exceptional early Parker- Charlie at his best!
Robert McLuckie | Michigan | 04/17/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great tunes from the early septet, quartet and quintet. Has that wonderful "genuine" scratchy production. This is the real thing! Some of Parker's best early work. Features Miles Davis."
Best Ballad Playing ever
Jan R. Klincewicz | Philly | 01/13/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This disk (on vinyl) was the first Parker album I ever owned. Although the up-tempo stuff (Moose the Mooche, Yardbird Suite etc.) are classic Bird, the ballads on here (Don't Blame Me, Embraceable You, etc.)have never, in my opinion, been excelled by Parker himself or anyone else for pure melodic beauty. The improvisations on these ballads are crystalline elegance, each note utterly perfect. This disk changed ny life forever. Well worth replacing the old vinyl copy."
