AllMusic Review by

This contains 25 of the master takes from Charlie Parker's Dial sessions. The Dials have always been a bit underrated compared to the better distributed Savoys, but they are of equal value with Miles Davis, Lucky Thompson, Dodo Marmarosa, Howard McGhee, Erroll Garner, Wardell Gray, and J.J. Johnson making important contributions. Dizzy Gillespie is on "Diggin' Diz." These are ideal for general listeners and CD collectors.
