Notes and Editorial Reviews

Re-released in 2015 to coincide with the 65th anniversary of its recording, Charlie Parker with Strings includes newly discovered alternate takes, totaling 18 previously unreleased performances. “The music on this two-disc collection is lush, poetic, romantic as hell, and the perfect antidote to a surfeit of jazz records featuring undisciplined blowing.”  - All Music Guide
