Not yet rated | write a review
Personnel: Charlie Parker (alto saxophone); Dizzy Gillespie (trumpet); Thelonious Monk (piano); Curly Russell (bass); Buddy Rich (drums). Producer: Norman Granz. Reissue producers: Michael Lang, Ben Young. Recorded in New York, New York on June 6, 1950. Includes liner notes by Norman Granz and James Patrick. Digitally remastered by Steven Fallone and Ben Young (Polygram Studios). This is part of the Verve Master Editions series. Did you ever say "I sure would like to have been a fly on the wall for the recording of that album?" Now you can be, with Verve's Master Edition of BIRD AND DIZ, the final collaborative recording date by the two giants of bebop. This was also the only time the duo ever recorded with Thelonious Monk. Every utterance from the session is preserved here, including mistakes, false starts and studio chatter. The quicksilver bop lines of Parker's sax and Gillespie's trumpet ride over the angular piano punctuation of Monk and the bombastic drumming of Buddy Rich.
