A rare live performance by Bird appearing here for the first time ever in its entirety. Recorded at Café Society in the last year of this famous club's existence.

The recording includes Parker's only known versions of "Bewitched" and "Gone with the Wind", as well as the only version of "Summertime" apart from the studio recording with strings.

This was an unusual set from Bird, without the usual compositions, but ballads and mid-tempo numbers instead.
