Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Although i have most of these tracks on a compilation Charlie Parker box set, i hadn't paid much attention to this 1950 session recorded for the Verve label...for years just focussing on the earlier Parker material on the Savoy and Dial labels (1946 to 1948 approx). The band for this album consisted of Charlie Parker (alto sax), Dizzie Gillespie (trumpet), Thelonious Monk (piano) , Buddy Rich (drums) and Curly Russell (bass)..............listening to these tracks over the last week, as they are presented on Bird and Diz has been an exhilerating experience....this session was the final studio union of Parker and Gillespie, and the only one with Monk at the piano and Buddy Rich on drums.... the recording quality is excellent - clearer and with far greater clarity than the earlier Parker recordings...

All the band are at the top of their game - Parker and Gillespie seem to be engaged in continual and relentless dualling...Monk and Rich and Russell provide their own unique styles ...it all fits..

The 1st six tracks are from the original 10" vinyl, released in 1952 on Verve , two years after it was recorded. Many of the critics at the time viewed it as a missed opportunity.....also much criticism on the decision to employ the services of big band drummer Buddy Rich, whose drumming style was intrusive and out of step....apparently..... not an opinion i share at all..

All the tracks are up there with the best work of Parker and Gillespie. i won't go into each one, but would like to single out 'leap frog' which is a must hear track....its a frenetic parker composition that doesn't let up for 2.29 mins. not that long admittedly, but at the end of it you need to take a breath..
