Charlie Parker At Storyville

Rare work by Charlie Parker, recorded at Storyville Nightclub in Boston in 1953 originally broadcast on radio station WHDH, and featuring Bird in a more open, relaxed style than his studio sessions. The recording quality is a bit dated, but the quality of the playing isn't with extremely fresh solo work by Parker, and great supporting work by players that include Herb Pomeroy, Red Garland, Roy Haynes, etc.

Thanks Mel! This is worth it just to hear Bird play "I'll Walk Alone" and for the added bonus of Red Garland!
