A budget-priced, 15-track collection of vintage Charlie Parker recordings from the vaults of Everest Records.
3.The Street Beat
7.Ooh Bop She Bam
12.Carvin' The Bird
Personnel: Charlie Parker (saxophone).
This Collectables compilation features early performances of Bird, from Dial and other places. The music is top-notch, and the recording quality is a bit better than on the Rhino collection, but not much. There are many other Bird collections that are far better than this one. Be wary. ~ Thom Jurek
