CHARLIE PARKER CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION COLLECTION

4 1/2 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

With Charlie Parker under contract, producer Norman Granz recorded him in a variety of contexts, among them putting Bird’s sax in front of a Latin rhythm section. A couple of sessions, from which eight tunes ended up on the 10” LP South of the Border (Mercury MGC-513), featured Bird with small groups including veteran jazz players with the addition of José Mangual on bongos and Luis Miranda on congas. All of the master takes from those dates, along with Bird’s studio recordings with Machito’s big band, have been included on this CD, which also contains several alternate takes from the sessions.
