Blues On The Sofaand you watch how i met your mother season 5 episode 10
Words can hardly describe the revolutionary effect of these seminal recordings -- collected here on eight full-length CDs, with a comprehensive page booklet with original essays, photos, and detailed discographical information -- when first released. Charlie Parker 's vision, spectacular technique, and style helped to transform the world of jazz in the s, and it has never been the same. As with the efforts of creative visionaries, his early innovations were at first resisted by some as too radical, but with time, Bird became universally recognized for the genius he was. It is impossible to imagine any serious collection of 20th century music not containing at least some of the tracks collected on this splendid compilation. These disks collect all of Parker 's studio sessions on Dial and Savoy, the two labels that assiduously chronicled his career during the decade. The set excludes four CDs of live material and most sessions recorded by amateurs, but includes outtakes, Bird 's recordings as a sideman, and tracks cut or issued under the Savoy and Dial labels, including the Spotlite, Stash, Guild, Musicraft, Bel-Tone, and the Comet lines. So many great musicians performed with Bird that part of the thrill is not only the scintillating work of Parker , but also the opportunity to revisit seminal performances by Miles Davis , Dizzy Gillespie , Max Roach , Bud Powell , and a host of others.
And like the New Testament, they frequently surface in new editions. So what justifies yet another one-this time a repackaging of a repackaging the Savoy CD box? Simply put, vinyl is hot, a surprising profit center for the struggling record industry. Naturally, the music is the main attraction. Or, worse yet, without splitting the not-much-sturdier outer box.

Charlie Parker: The Complete Savoy & Dial Studio Recordings 1944-1948
These are not sacred texts. They are pieces of music. Yes, alto saxophonist Charlie Parker is probably the Colossus of modern jazz history, the legendary junkie genius who effectively together with trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie, pianist Bud Powell, trumpeter Miles Davis, drummer Max Roach and a few others created bebop, and thus laid the ground for much of the music that would follow. But this is immaterial, or at least not nearly as important as it might seem. This is not a music which ought to be archived, and studied, like a holy relic. It is music to be listened to for pleasure.
The historic collection produced and compiled by Orrin Keepnews , captures Charlie "Bird" Parker at the beginning of his storied career and presents studio recordings released on the New Jersey based Savoy label and Los Angeles -based Dial Records between the years and Said Orrin Keepnews in the introductory notes: "This is undoubtedly the most ambitious Charlie Parker compilation yet attempted. Our goal is to assemble the entire formally recorded output of the incredible period midway through the 's during which this remarkable artist first made his presence permanently known. Orrin Keepnews March 2, - March 1, , compiler and producer of the 8-CD box set that this LP collection is based, had been involved in producing both new jazz recordings and historical reissues for over a half-century.

Besides the recording output of Charlie Parker what is known about him has been subject to much controversy and speculation. As preparation for this release I read or reread several book including Bird Lives! What remains a mystery is where the genius that is Bird came from. Maybe that mystery is the explanation for his genius. All other questions seem never to be answered sufficiently, was he the greedy Son-of-a-bitch that Miles Davis claimed in his autobiography or a jazz prophet and saint as many avow? One of the freshest takes on the Parker enigma is by Canadian poet Martin Gray.
