2-CD SET

INCLUDES 4 BONUS TRACKS

Originally released in 1959, five years after Charlie Parker’s untimely death, the two LP set Diz ‘n’ Bird –The Beginning (Roost– SK-106), which received a five-star rating on Down Beat, was a compilation of obscure early bebop recordings, taking segments from a 1947 quintet set by Parker and Gillespie at Carnegie Hall, and from a 1953 Gillespie quintet concert at Salle Pleyel, and coupling them with a handful of Bird’s 1947 Dial sides.

This 2-CD set includes the complete 1947 Carnegie Hall set, plus the entire Salle Pleyel concert, along with the Dial tracks originally selected, and adds a superb full 1951 radio show recorded at Birdland also presenting Bird and Diz as a team, with the great Bud Powell on piano.
