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 an interesting (if not entirely thrilling) rendition of the chestnut "My Melancholy Baby

The final collaborative recording by Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie was the aptly named Bird and Diz recorded over various dates in 1949 and 1950. It was originally released as a 10 in. album and collection of 78-rpm records by Clef Records in 1952. In 1957, following Parker’s death, it was reissued by Verve Records in the Genius Of Charlie Parker series as No. 4 but for reasons best known to Granz he issued it without, ‘Passport’ and ‘Mohawk’; instead it had some alternate takes of other tracks. The reissued Bird and Diz in The Genius of Charlie Parker series is included in a brand new budget priced box set. Related Topics:Buddy Rich Charlie Parker Dizzy Gillespie Jazz reDiscovered Albums.
