Charlie Parker with Strings - it was his idea, and Norman Granz did it at a financial loss. Some of Bird's recordings of which he was most proud.
Good swinging number
great sax, hideous strings and blather...... the worst of Parker's recordings
The brilliant saxophonist who became at the origins of modern jazz.
Actually problem solved. I zoomed in 500x on google chrome so now the entire screen is a really pixelated slideshow.
OOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo You are a proper Charlie! I like you so much.
I would love to be your friend.
dreadful strings arrangement shown up by the lyrical sublimely played Charlie who is on song as a bird branching out by himself as usual. Piano is fine but those violins.........
as a string musician who loves jazz, why oh WHY are there no jazz projects involving even halfway decent arrangers for strings? I literally think I could do better than this given time and a wage. Parker, of course, is regardlessly sublime ...
Love these old crap recordings -it's the only way to listen to jazz.
