CHARLIE PARKER Bird: The Complete Charlie Parker On Verve (1990) (RMST) (POLYGRAM RECORDS) (176 TRACKS) 320 Kbps MP3 ALBUM

Bird: The Complete Charlie Parker On Verve  
Charlie Parker 

Label: Polygram Records 
Release Date: 10/25/1990 

Album Description: 

This massive retrospective contains everything Bird recorded on the Verve label, including live tracks with Ella Fitzgerald. With nearly 2 hours of never-before-released music, there are 176 tracks in all.

Digitally remastered by Phil Schaap, Tom "Curley" Ruff and Dennis M. Drake. 

It is difficult to overestimate the importance of this release, a comprehensive collection of everything Parker recorded for Verve. The set witnesses Parker developing the model for modern jazz, devising styles and techniques that would define the genre for the rest of the century. The range of material here is impressive, and the music shows Bird venturing beyond his already wide-reaching jazz horizons to encompass Afro-Cuban influences and Classically tinged phrases. He even quotes from Stravinsky''s THE RITE OF SPRING on "Repetition." 

The list of session musicians reads like a veritable who''s who of jazz. Ella Fitzgerald, Benny Carter, Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis, Coleman Hawkins, Buddy Rich, Lester Young, and Max Roach all put in appearances. Here also are Parker''s controversial sessions with strings. While purists cried sacrilege at the marriage, the playing is rich in tone and body-to the point of dreaminess - and, even in an orchestral context, Parker is never less than experimentally virtuosic. In short, THE COMPLETE SESSION ON VERVE is an essential contribution to a complete picture of one of jazz''s greatest figures.
