AUTUMN IN NEW YORK was recorded live at the Rockland Palace Dance Hall in New York in 1952. Like many live Parker albums recorded with inferior equipment by devoted members of the audience, the sound quality is poor. Parker is in fine form however, and the set list includes such treats as "Moose The Mooche," the groovy, infectious "Sly Mongoose" and a breakneck treatment of "Lester Leaps In." Parker's alto, on tracks like "This Time The Dream's On Me," jumps through stream-of-consciousness phrases in a way that's truly miraculous.
