Collector’s limited edition LP. 180gram virgin coloured vinyl. The Dial and Savoy sessions by Charlie Parker (1920-1955) have always been considered one of the highest points in Bird’s recording career. Both were small labels, conducted by people truly interested in the new music, and the axophonist was mostly in full command of his talents in the short pe- riod of 1946-48, during which the majority of this music was taped. Sessions included Dizzy Gillespie (tp), Lucky Thompson (ts), George Handy (p), Arv Garrison (g), Ray Brown (b), Stan Levey (d), Howard McGhee (tp), Wardell Gray (ts), Barney Kessel (g), Red Callender (b), Don Lamond (d), Miles Davis (tp), Duke Jordan (p), Tommy Potter (b), Max Roach (d), Erroll Garner (p), Har- old “Doc” West (d), Earl Coleman (voc), J.J. Johnson (tb), Flip Phillips (ts), Red Norvo (vib), Teddy Wilson (p), Slam Stewart (b), Specs Powell (d) J.C. Heard (d).
