The leading figure in the early revolution of modern jazz, Charles Parker, is featured on these performances with two now-legendary trumpet players each of whom was closely associated with him, Miles Davis and Red Rodney. The program of the album consists of some of the best known literature of the bop era as well as a number of standard ballads particularly attractive to these musicians.

*#1-14 originally released on Bird on 52nd Street (Fantasy/Debut 6011); #15-27 as Bird at St. Nick’s (Fantasy/Debut 6012).

**Since maximum playing time of a single CD could not accommodate the entire length of the original double-LP release, “This Time the Dream’s on Me (take 2)” was omitted.
