About this being parody or not:
I'd tend to agree with what JSangrey said about this being "observation" rather than parody. There is another example of it on one of the very first Lighthouse All Stars LPs on Contemporary: "Big Girl", I think.
And then, for some more samplings of this, try to listen to more or less the same crowd of West Coast jazzmen having a ball as "Boots Brown & His Blockbusters" on the "Rock That Beat" LP on Groove (RCA). Half of the tracks are by this West coast crowd, the other half by the East Coast equivalent (Cohn, Travis et al.) sailing under the flag of "Dan Drew & His Daredevils".
Not quite the real (black) deal, of course, but not really caricaturesque or parody to the ears of this fan of Honking Sax R&B either but more a case of good natured "hey, we can do it too" rampaging. Just some fun and far better IMHO than many other attemps by white bands at sounding like the real (black) 50s R&B deal back then.
new one coming out that might be interesting:
Owning the big EMI box by Ciccolini (and enjoying it a lot), I still have all of his Satie ... and I quite like it for what it is.
Another one I really like, and my first Satie, is this here by Reinbert de Leeuw:
This one has been reissued, just in case:
just have to love the absurd poetry of automated translations - very much in spirit with Satie and with the dada centennial!
