Red Norvo's dragged his vibes out into a field of wildflowers – and while we hate to think what that's done to the sound of his instrument (not to mention his hayfever), we can definitely say that the album's a groovy treat from the decade when Red was turning out some of his finest music ...

Posthumous issue of an early 50s live set by Charlier Parker – one of the many that were rushed to the public in the years after his early death.
