Charlie Parker 1947-1949 Dial and Live Broadcast – Mono Vinyl Rip


Parker's early recordings on Dial are full of drive, inspiration and craftsmanship, the quality of the shellac originals is above all praise. Unfortunately, it is not possible to get these 78 discs, and vinyl reissues presented here sound by all criteria worse. At Pickwick, all records were passed through the reverb, but even such recordings with a competent remastering often sound preferable and give a better idea of Parker's playing than technocratic digitizations from the originals on YouTube, so let them be here. Maybe someone will love them, as I once listened to this particular Pickwick album and fell in love with the music of "Bird of Paradise".

The last four tracks are recordings from 1949, made during a radio broadcast. The recording is of good density and quite lively, although high frequencies are absent as a class.
