***

“A date that sounds very much like those that Parker and Gillespie recorded for Savoy and Dial, except with top-of-the-line production quality. Even more interesting, though, is Parker's choice of Thelonious Monk as pianist.” (Rick Anderson)

CHARLIE PARKER alto sax
DIZZY GILLESPIE trumpet
THELONIOUS MONK piano

NOTE: Both of these songs were first issued on the original 1952 Bird & Diz 10” album (Mercury MGC-512) along with the five master takes from the Parker-Gillespie-Monk session. The 1956 12” LP Bird and Diz (Verve Records MGV-8006), released after Parker’s death, omitted both 1949 tunes and presented instead the 1950 master takes along with plenty of alternative takes.]
