The Complete Charlie Parker on Verve; disc 7. This takes me back to when I was a teenager, when I found Bird's South of the Border album in a junk store. I don't think anyone would consider that one of his best, but I found it fascinating, for several reasons. First of all, the quality of Bird's improvising on those pretty simple Mexican tunes is amazing. Then you have Max Roach interacting with Jose Mangual and Luis Miranda on Latin percussion. Then, the enigmatic Benny Harris on trumpet. His playing isn't that good here, but it's never less than interesting. That probably doesn't make any sense, but even as a kid, I loved his note choices.
