4-CD SET - 106 TRACKS

5 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

INCLUDES 20-PAGE BOOKLET

This spectacular 106-track set presents Parker’s complete recording sessions for Ross Russell’s Dial label. Included here are some of Bird’s most admired sides, such as A Night in Tunisia, Cool Blues and All the Things You Are, as well as the troubled Lover Man session, after which the saxophonist suffered a mental breakdown. Also issued on Dial was the so-called Home-Cooking date, an amateur recording made right after Bird left the Camarillo psychiatric hospital (the session is presented here in its entirety, including the complete version of "I Got Rhythm" for the first time ever)

As a bonus, three additional complete Charlie Parker sessions from the same period, which were originally issued under the names of Sarah Vaughan (including a vocal version of "Lover Man” that predates the instrumental one), a legendary date with Dizzy Gillespie, pianist Clyde Hart and singer Rubberlegs Williams, and an extremely rare (and now newly remastered) studio date recorded on test glass acetates but never commercially issued, featuring Bird with trombonist/ singer Clyde Bernhardt, and pianist Jay McShann.
