AllMusic Review by

An anthology covering some vital tracks from Charlie Parker's Savoy period. This anthology was an attempt at condensing the huge Savoy box down to a more manageable (and less expensive) greatest hits set. There's too many superb performances to accurately convey their excellence this way, but for people who don't want to hear Parker's full Savoy output, it does give a reasonable overview.
