Charlie Parker fanatics will debate the merits of his various recordings until blue in the face, but nearly everyone is in agreement about the monumental importance of his Savoy sides. NOW'S THE TIME: THE REVOLUTIONARY CHARLIE PARKER collects some of the best of those sides in one 17-track package, making for a lovely sampling of the jazz great's genius.
The "revolutionary" of the album's title is no overstatement. Along with Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Max Roach, and others, Parker was busy permanently redefining the entire landscape of jazz with a complex, frenetic music called bebop. Some of the best examples of the style--"Koko," Billie's Bounce," and "Donna Lee," among others--are here, and sound just as fresh and vital as they did on their release in 1945.
