New remastered edition.
The music here comes from one of Monday night sessions at the Trade Winds, on June 16, 1952, a time when Charlie Parker was touring the West Coast. It was not good time for Bird, who appeared tired and overweight, but played as magnificently as ever.
This CD's historic value. Trumpeter Chet Baker is heard shortly before he joined Gerry Mulligan's quartet participating on a jam session with altos Charlie Parker and Sonny Criss. They play lengthy versions of four songs and there are plenty of heated moments on this bop set.
