Alto saxophonist Charlie Parker (1920-1955) was among the most influential jazz artists ever, and one of the few indisputable geniuses of his time. This set presents the complete original LP The Immortal Charlie Parker (Savoy MG-12001) along with most of the master takes from his other studio recording sessions for Herman Lubinsky’s Savoy label. Included here are some of Bird’s most admired sides, such as “Koko,” “Parker’s Mood,” and “Donna Lee.” One session presents him on tenor sax, an instrument on which he only rarely recorded.
New York and Detroit between 1944 & 1948.
(*) Bonus tracks: From the same sessions, but not included on the original LP.
