Bird

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Mark Allan
Through the miracle of modern technology and countless hours of studio toil, producer Lennie Niehaus matches original solos by alto sax titan Charlie "Bird" Parker with accompaniment by modern players. The sidemen playing with the long-dead legend include bassists Ron Carter and Ray Brown, drummer John Guerin, and trumpeter Jon Faddis. It's a treat to hear Bird's brilliance in crystal-clear stereo, although the too-loud crowd noise from the original recordings on four of the 11 tracks is disconcerting. The soundtrack is from a celluloid tribute by jazz fan Clint Eastwood.
