  1. The exclusive recording contract between Charlie Parker and Norman Granz was beneficial to both parties. Signing Parker was a coup for Granz, who did not yet have the large stable of recording artists.

  3. Charlie Parker died just before the LP became the dominant artistic as well as commercial platform to hear music. His catalogue thus lacks the evergreen, career-preserving document "Kind of Blue" has been for Miles Davis or the Songbook series has been for Ella Fitzgerald/5(8).
  4. This LP contains a cross section of Bird 's live performances from and, although the string arrangements are the same as for the studio recordings, Parker 's solos are quite a bit different. Pity there's no live version of "Just Friends," his most successful string recording. It's not quite essential music but worth picking up.6/
  5. Charles Christopher "Bird" Parker, Jr (29th August – 12th March ) was a U.S. bebop saxophonist and composer.

  6. Those allergic to orchestral arrangements should be forewarned that several tracks, including "Laura," "April in Paris," and "Just Friends" (which includes the solo Parker reputedly claimed was his own favorite), are string-laden. Parker's playing transcends all, however, and Bird: The Original Recordings is an outstanding collection for fans.
