A dream come true for completists and Parker enthusiasts, this 4-disc set brings together all the performances from the artist's Savoy years, including full-length numbers from the legendary Royal Roost dates (broadcast on "Symphony Sid" Torin's program), and material from Chicago club and Carnegie Hall concerts. Parker's Quintet, whose line-up rotates but often features the spectacular and very young Miles Davis on trumpet and the drum wizardry of Max Roach, displays an always-dazzling caliber of musicianship, heightened by the appearance of guests like Lucky Thompson, Dizzy Gillespie and Milt Jackson.
Bird's repertoire is well-represented, with tracks including "Koko," "Ornithology," "Chasin' The Bird," "Scrapple From The Apple" and "Confirmation." Unusual cuts like "These Foolish Things Remind Me Of You," "How High The Moon," a version of "White Christmas" and "Salt Peanuts," add variety to these sets. Audiophiles may be disappointed by the surface noise in these recordings (particularly in the Chicago material), but the payoff is the musical/historical significance of these documents, in which Parker's transformative, volcanic yet exquisitely considered playing is in full flower. A highly representative compendium of a genius's vision, this is an essential addition to the Parker catalogue.
