Bird After Dark combines tracks off several of alto saxophonist Charlie Parker's various Savoy label sessions, including Newly Discovered Sides and Bird at the Roost: The Savoy Years, Vol. 1. Given that these albums go in and out of print, this budget compilation seems like an acceptable addition to Parker's catalog -- though diehards will still want to seek out the original albums.
