Bird with the Herd

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
As is often the case with Charlie Parker's live recordings from the 1950s, this rare performance has erratic sound and bad balance. Still this session, which finds Bird sitting in with Woody Herman's Third Herd, is quite unique. Parker is the main soloist throughout the budget LP, getting a chance to play some fresh material like "The Goof and I," "Four Brothers," and "Lemon Drop" and to interact with a big band.
