Vinyl LP Reissue!

Charlie Parker Memorial, Vol. 1 is an LP record by Charlie Parker, released posthumously by Savoy Records. Several tracks on this album had been previously released on other formats, but is the first 12 inch release of these master takes. It contains selections from four sessions recorded in 1947 and 1948, and contains several previously unreleased alternate takes from these sessions. This is a Savoy LP reissue of the historic Charlie Parker All Stars sessions. Parker is joined by Jazz giants Miles Davis, Max Roach, John Lewis, Bud Powell, Curly Russell, and Tommy Potter.

"Hearing [Parker's] unfettered flow of ideas, his nonchalant double-timing of the tempo, his playful unison hookups and call-and-response passages with a 21-year-old [Miles] Davis, often playing mellow foil to the fire-breathing Bird, is to experience true genius." - Bill Milkowski, The Absolute Sound, 4/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics
