AllMusic Review by

The Delta compilation Jazz Masters includes ten tracks of Charlie Parker at his best, but a disc needs far more than that (as well as liner notes, session details, and top-drawer sound) to rate highly in his discography. The material present comes from his Dial period of the mid-'40s when he recorded his most seminal material, including "Scrapple From the Apple," "Anthropology," and "Chasin' the Bird."
