This CD set contains Charlie Parkers best small band studio recordings from his later period. These outstanding tracks have the finest sound quality of Birds entire discography. The sessions are complete, but only the master takes are included.

Included are two superlative quartet sessions, as well as his last quintet studio reunions with Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie. Pianist Thelonious Monk, Al Haig, Hank Jones and John Lewis are also featured, along with Birds favorite drummer, the exceptional Max Roach. Trumpeter Red Rodney also features, and on one track, Coleman Hawkins.
