Charlie Parker, Charlie Parker With Strings (1950/1995)
A compilation album – based on sessions from 1949/1950. It’s perfect. Just perfect. Charlie Parker, produced by Norman Granz, and great players and the songs – standards, or would be, so many great writers involved. I loved this album – in its various versions – from when my mum first played me Charlie Parker. But I only just picked up my own copy of the record recently, a RSD exclusive – the album, with a download code too – just $25. A bargain. A lovely thing to have.
