They should've had the bass play on his solo. That freaking conga creates a tonic pedal which gets in the way of Bird's chord subs. 

Bird Lives!!!!!!!

I purchased all 8 volumes of Parker on Verve in the 70´s as japanese editions, I think "Temptation" "Bird with Strings" "Now´s the Time" , "Bird and Diz", "Cole Porter Songbook", "South of the border", "Jazz Perennial" and "Swedish Schnapps".

"South of the Border" was Vol. 6 I think. It had both the 1951 and 1952 stuff. I think the 1951 stuff is better. On the 1952 stuff it´s a rare occasion to hear Little Benny Harris, he did not record often, but sounds a bit like he didn´t have very good chops then.

And I think there was some late 40´s stuff with Machito and Flip Phillips added, "Mambo" and "No Noise" or something like that...... haven´t spinned it for quite some time.
