Comment:

In the annals of jazz, the Charlie Parker quintet’s 1948-49 residency at NYC bebop hotspot the Royal Roost — usually including Miles Davis on trumpet and Max Roach on drums — is a glittering, golden moment. Bird never achieved as much altitude in the studio as he did live, and on a Roost run through “Anthropology,” his horn is an endless fount of ideas, making him sound like three different saxmen taking turns on the same solo. On the standard “East of the Sun,” Parker wrings some of the warmest, sweetest riffs in his repertoire from his trusty alto. And on the wild Roost ride “Chasin’ the Bird,” Miles, Max, & co. try to take the title literally, but there’s never been anyone who could keep a hold on Bird once he started flapping his wings skyward.
