Complete for the first time: CHARLIE PARKER’s “BARBADOS”, ‘Live’ in Paris, May 1949

Charlie-Parker-Bird-In-Paris-361402Anyone who knows the LP-version (pictured) will love this: ‘Cause it’s the very first time you can listen to this version of “BARBADOS” with all four theme statements by the Charlie Parker Quintet, and without some distortions due to the limitations of the private off-the-air recording in 1949.

Now, it’s also in the correct pitch😉

Charlie Parker (as) Kenny Dorham (tp) Al Haig (p) Tommy Potter (b) Max Roach (d) – Salle Pleyel, Paris, France, May 8-15, 1949:
