Overview

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. 4: 1948-1950 contains 24 Charlie Parker tracks on a single disc including "Parker's Mood" (three takes), "Perhaps" (six), "Marmaduke" (seven), "Leap Frog" (ten), and "Relaxing With Lee" (five). While most of the discs in the Alternative Takes series will appeal to both collectors and those new to jazz, this Parker collection can only be recommended to hardcore aficionados who insist on having every note played by Bird.
