Plays Cole Porter + 6 Bonus Tracks
Warning: Last items in stock!
Contained here is the complete LP Charlie Parker Plays Cole Porter (Verve MGV8007). Intended as a homage to composer Cole Porter, who penned all of the tunes featured here, the album marks one of Norman Granz’s fi rst attempts to present a songbook, preceding the celebrated LPs he would make with Ella Fitzgerald. Bird never saw the fi nal product, as he died on March 12, 1955, before the LP’s release date. In fact, the album’s second session would also be his very last, either live or at a recording studio. Six bonus tracks have also beenincluded here, consisting of additional studio versions of Porter songs by Bird.
