Overview

This import roundup of some of Parker's key Savoy and Dial sides makes for a fine cross-label introduction to the bebop legend's '40s stretch. The 20-track set takes in bop classics like "Ko-Ko," "Yardbird Suite," "Now's the Time," and "Billie's Bounce," among many others. Throughout, Parker shows the myriad ways he could contort the medium he helped invent, and that's not to forget the sheer dynamism and emotional breadth he delivers, too. And helping along the way, Bird is joined by most of the A-list bebop players of the day, including Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Dexter Gordon, Dodo Marmarosa, Max Roach, and Howard McGhee. History on a disc.
