Three questions for the die-hard Jazz fanatiscs:
1.
How come here it says 1947 but on the Discogs website it says the 10" 78 single was released in 1949? https://www.discogs.com/Charlie-Parker-Charlie-Parker-Quintet-Bird-Of-Paradise-Dexterity/release/6118822
Was it recorded two whole years prior to its release?

I know this track actually is All the Things You Are, but in '47 there was no release of All the Things You Are either.

2.
Who composed the intro theme? It was already in Dizzy Gillespie & Charlie Parker's 1945 recording of All the Things You Are.

3.
Was this intro theme ever used for a TV show or cartoon or something?

Strange thing about Bird, in his solos he moves so far away that you think he won't make it back for the next chord change. I'm on the edge of my seat saying, "he won't make it, he won't make it!" But invariably he does and I breathe a sigh of relief. Bird lives!

The other Tony Dutch

@Roy Davis Don't think goodchessactor meant that they weren't enjoying the music.

Maick95

Don't even think about listening to Eric Dolphy then lmaoo

Roy Davis

I think you have created your own anxiety. What you should be listening to is how bird developed such masterly skill set on the alto. Sit back and relax.

Roy Davis

I am 74 and listened to JAZZ just about all of my life. While it is always good to study the technical aspects of a Musician's music however, there is a spiritual message/statement that is more important. For   example, the first time I heard Oliver Nelson's "Stolen Moments" it took me to another level. I said to my self, " what a profound statement". Moreover, when I use to frequent many of the Jazz clubs in NYC, one thing that impress me and that was I never saw a fight or any sought of violence of any kind. Why? because  you are experiencing something greater than your self.

2:24 the most underrated thing about Bird is how he played/improvised counterpoint. Check it. On any record if he's playing underneath someone leading the melody, he plays the most astounding, balanced, and complimentary phrases.

Lisa Spears

You can hear a little of Charlie in all eras and all genres of our music. Phrasing and timing is impeccable. Greatest.

Brian J. Carnevale

Perhaps the younger generation will come to appreciate this kind of music. My Dad love to play it on the weekends. Reminded him of his youth. Few realize the influence he brought forth throughout the music World.

emilianoturazzi

the "new orleans-like" final counterpoint is a wonder. I can't understand why they so seldom did this kind of things....

epf1961

Bird is just bursting with ideas and energy-- Listen to all the stuff he plays behind Miles' solo! Brimming with Life and Love! This was recorded shortly after his release from Camarillo-- He was cleaned up and in absolute top form.. In my opinion, some of his best work was from these '47 sessions...
