Charlie Parker
The Genius of Charlie Parker

60 years ago Charlie “Bird” Parker’s revolutionary playing established SAVOY JAZZ as the eye of the Bebop storm that transformed jazz in the 1940’s. To commemorate this milestone, Savoy presents this up-dated and expanded version of one of its earliest long-playing records. This must-have set features Bird’s best studio and live material from his explosive Savoy and Dial years. Release date February 8, 2005.
