The Alternative Takes, Vol. 1: 1945-1947

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
The Alternative Takes series is of immense value to consumers of the "French Classics" CD series. These are alternate takes in chronological order of historic jazz and some blues with a strong representation of the swing era. The Alternative Takes, Vol. 1: 1945-1947 contains 32 Charlie Parker tracks on a single disc including multiple takes of "Billie's Bounce," "Now's the Time," "Thriving From a Riff," "Moose the Mooche," and "Dark Shadows." While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it.
