AllMusic Review by

As if the world needs another compilation of the essential bebop originals Charlie Parker offered to the world in the '40s, here's yet another. Studio tracks that are well known as prime cuts from Bird's repertoire are all here over two CDs and 50 selections. No commentary is needed on the quality of this music, save that the digital reproductions to CD are clean and strong. It is conceivable in this day and age that listeners don't have Charlie Parker recordings, much less know about how he changed the music world in his time. You should have more than one, but this is a mere starter to whet your bop whistle.
