Swedish Schnapps – Genius Of Charlie Parker #8

LP (Item 55157) Verve, Early 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

A late 50s album that issues some killer combo material by Bird! One half of the album features work by a group that includes Red Rodney, John Lewis, Ray Brown, and Kenny Clarke – and the other features Parker with Miles Davis, Walter Bishop Jr, Max Roach, and Teddy Kotick. Tracks are short, and include some classics – and the album includes alternate takes of 4 numbers. Titles include "Si Si", "Swedish Schnapps", "Back Home Blues", "Lover Man", "Au Privave", "She Rote", and "Star Eyes". (Yellow label promo pressing. Cover has some wear and splitting.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Prestige, 1973. Very Good+
Amazing stuff from Ivan Boogaloo Joe Jones!
