Thanks indeed!

 

And now that I read through your notes - I remember the Apollo material is definitely new to me indeed, and I did find out, but totally forgot to check it out so far.

Yes, thanks Mjzee. Will stick a printout of your findings inside the box (which I bought just as much for various of the non-Bird sessions, BTW, and on an overall value-for-money tradeoff still am not too displeased ;))

No, neither am I.  I thought the jazz dates are worth the box (assuming you bought it at a good price).

One other point: When these Bird albums came out, it's possible they filled a real need because the material wasn't otherwise readily available.  But with the passage of time, superior releases have come out (the Savoy live package, the complete Dial & Savoy studio box, the corrected Rockland Palace, etc), so this Charlie Parker Records box now isn't a great way to hear this material.

I've been meaning to post some thoughts on the CP Records box, since I've owned it for 1 1/2 years.  Here are my notes as to the Parker sides:

 


Disc 27: Historical Performances 1.  5 tracks from Royal Roost, 4 tracks from Birdland 5/17/50 ("One Night At Birdland").

Disc 28: Historical Performances 2.  Mostly "One Night At Birdland"; one track from Royal Roost.

Disc 29: Historical Performances 3.  Royal Roost.

 

These came up here:  http://www.organissi...paid/?p=1330520

as being first released on Le Jazz Cool

What was the history of CP Records?  I only remember the Bird and Prez Lps when they were new.  I'm surprised by the variety of other material.  Wasn't the label partially owned by some of the Parker family?

According to the commonly known historical accounts, Doris Parker had a hand in running the label.

Doris Parker & Aubrey Mayhew. The material made a lot of rounds, some of it. Everest & AJ Records (Archives Of Jazz series) was how I came across some of it in the 70s. Very...circuitous routes to release, some of those things appeared to take.

So a-ha, perhaps? If Koch is now the legit owner of the label, boom.
