Charlie Parker & Dizzy Gillespie

Bird and Diz: Limited Edition 180gm Red Vinyl LP (Centennial Celebration Collection)


Release Date: 17 April, 2020

This release presents the complete widely celebrated Massey Hall concert, performed in Canada by an all-star quintet of bebop founders which would never be reunited again. It appears here in the actual order of performance and without the added bass and echo which darkened the sound quality of some issues. As a bonus, we present a version of "Bass-ically Speaking". Although the track was recorded at a New York studio, Mingus originally included it, with dubbed applause, as part of the Massey Hall concert.

AllMusic "A legendary set, no matter how or when or where it's issued."
