Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Arwulf Arwulf
On Primo's double-disc compilation released in 2007, The Rise and Fall of Charlie Parker is depicted using 40 definitive bop recordings made in New York, Hollywood, and Detroit between November 1945 and March 1951, a segment of time that begins five years into and ends about three years short of the end of Bird's adventurous recording career.

The supporting cast includes trumpeters Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, and Howard McGhee, trombonist J.J. Johnson, saxophonists Lucky Thompson and Wardell Gray, pianists Dodo Marmarosa, Erroll Garner, Bud Powell, Duke Jordan, Al Haig, John Lewis, and Walter Bishop, Jr., and drummers Max Roach and Roy Haynes. Even if dozens of existing Charlie Parker collections cover similar ground, the titles are well chosen, the music is uniformly excellent, and the spirit of Charlie Parker is inextinguishable.
