Overview

Yardbird Suite

Altoist Frank Morgan explores his bebop roots on this infectious set, playing six bop-era standards (four by his idol Charlie Parker) and "Skylark." With stimulating support from pianist Mulgrew Miller, bassist Ron Carter and drummer Al Foster, Morgan pays tribute to Bird, yet does not copy him (although he has the ability to sometimes sound very similar to Parker). This spontaneous session (which includes such songs as "Yardbird Suite," "Scrapple From the Apple" and "Star Eyes") has its subtle surprises and is often hard-swinging. Recommended.
