August__2015 Los Angeles, CA:  Savoy Jazz will reissue their Grammy nominated collection of jazz pioneer Charlie Parker’s seminal recordings from the 1940’s, “CHARLIE PARKER: THE COMPLETE SAVOY AND DIAL STUDIO RECORDINGS” on 180 gram vinyl in a 10 LP set.  The historic collection produced and compiled by Orrin Keepnews, captures Charlie “Bird” Parker at the beginning of his storied career and presents studio recordings released on the New Jersey based Savoy label and Los Angeles-based Dial Records between the years 1944 and 1948.   The comprehensive and expansive repertoire showcases not only Bird at a crucial moment of his artistry but it also is a document of vital performances from the likes of Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Bud  Powell, Sarah Vaughan, Erroll Garner, John Lewis and many others who played alongside him.  “CHARLIE PARKER: THE COMPLETE SAVOY AND DIAL STUDIO RECORDINGS 1944--1948” will be released on November 13th on Savoy Jazz.

Said Orrin Keepnews in the introductory notes: “This is undoubtedly the most ambitious Charlie Parker compilation yet attempted. Our goal is to assemble the entire formally recorded output of the incredible period midway through the 1940’s during which this remarkable artist first made his presence permanently known.”
