"The Bird" Charlie Parker (alto sax), live broadcast recording, 25th December 1948 from The Royal Roost, New York City, with Kenny Dorham, trumpet, Al Haig, piano, Tommy Porter, bass, Max Roach, Drums.
XR remastered from the Savoy release, including DJ/announcer "Symphony Sid" Torin, by Andrew Rose at Pristine Audio.
This is the only Christmas tune I've managed to find from Parker and it was in pretty grim sound quality. I've managed to make major improvements here and look forward to producing more Charlie Parker to add to our existing releases in the months to come.
NB. I've used a range of photos in this video, including a number of musicians not heard in this particular recording."
