This album was originally released on Savoy just after Parker's death in 1955. It collects prime Bird, both out-takes and masters, from half a dozen sessions recorded between 1945 and 1948. A very young Miles Davis and Max Roach are on hand for 10 of the 14 cuts. Bud Powell, John Lewis, Duke Jordan, Curly Russell, and Tommy Potter also put in appearances on various tracks.
