"The Greatest Recording Session Made In Modern Jazz History In Its Entirety!" screams the subtitle in the original liner notes to this posthumous Savoy collection of digitally remastered Parker tracks. The point may be debatable, since the notes go on to detail how on the afternoon of November 26, 1945, "Parker was having trouble with his is obvious that Bird was unable to correct what was a reed problem...Miles was not playing well...Bud was constantly disappearing with Miles..." In addition, the sound quality varies from tune to tune. With these drawbacks, and the fact that the original sequencing and selection of songs is reproduced in full, it is clear that this reissue is aimed at the hard-core aficionado.
Five versions of "Billie's Bounce" are presented, including an interrupted "short take." Likewise the band's four attempts at "Now's The Time," two of which were false starts, are included. In other words, it's not a great date, but if you're a serious fan or student of the music, you can check out how the officially released takes stack up compared to the ones that were originally consigned to the Savoy vaults.
