Label:  Bird’s Nest

The Dial and Savoy sessions by Charlie Parker (1920- 1955) have always been considered one of the highest points in Bird’s recording career. Both were small labels, conducted by people truly interested in the new music, and the saxophonist was mostly in full command of his talents in the short period of 1946-48, during which the majority of this music was taped.
