AllMusic Review by

The Quintessence New York - Hollywood: 1942-1947 captures a number of first-rate tracks recorded by Charlie Parker between 1940 and 1947. These 36 bebop standards include "Koko," "Moose the Mooche," "Yardbird Suite," "Ornithology," and "Relaxin' at Camarillo." While the Frémeaux & Associés releases are recommended to casual fans, it may be easier to locate The Legendary Dial Masters, Vols. 1-2 on Jazz Classics.
