This collection of 78 rpm singles, all recorded on June 6,was released in Several things distinguish this from numerous other quintet recordings featuring these two bebop pioneers. It was recorded during the Monna Vanna - Art Is Dead that Parker was working under the aegis of producer Norman Granzwhose preference for large and unusual ensembles was notorious.
The end result in this case is a date that sounds very much like those that Parker and Gillespie recorded for Savoy and Dial, except with top-of-the-line production quality.
Even more interesting, though, is Parker 's choice of Thelonious Diggin Diz - Charlie Parker & Dizzy Gillespie - Diz And The Bird as pianist. Unfortunately, Monk is buried in the mix and gets very little solo space, so his highly idiosyncratic genius doesn't get much exposure here. Still, this is an outstanding album -- there are fine versions of Parker standards like "Leap Frog," "Mohawk," and "Relaxin' with Lee," as well as a burning performance of "Bloomdido" and twjo interesting if not entirely thrilling renditions of the chestnut "My Melancholy Baby.
