Charlie Parker and Lennie Tristano had mutual admiration and understanding for each other, and were good friends. However, their recorded output together is far from extensive and this CD contains the whole of it. Both were great jazz innovators, although Tristano was the fi rst to admit Bird’s pre-eminence among all musicians of that period. Their collaborative recordings consist of a variety of broadcasts, studio sessions, and even a couple of amazing duets recorded by Bird on his tape machine at Lennie’s house (presenting the only known recording that Charlie Parker ever made of “I Can’t Believe That You’re in Love with Me” and his only complete version of “All of Me”). Also featured throughout this CD are great stars such as Dizzy Gillespie, Fats Navarro, Miles Davis, Sarah Vaughan and Max Roach.
