24 BIT DIGITALLY REMASTERED

INCLUDES 15 BONUS TRACKS


This set contains the complete original LP Bird and Diz (Verve MGV-8006), consisting of a quintet session which marked Parker and Gillespie’s last studio date ever (although they would later be recorded together live on numerous occasions, including the celebrated 1953 Massey Hall concert). This session was also Parker’s only studio encounter with the great Thelonious Monk.
As a bonus, all existing complete alternate takes not present on the 12” LP, as well as the only two breakdown takes with full Parker solos, and three further complete quintet and quartet sessions recorded by Bird for Verve during the same period, one of them featuring Miles Davis on trumpet.
