Red vinyl. This set contains the complete original LP Bird and Diz (Verve MGV-8006), consisting of a quintet session which marked Parker and Gillespie’s last studio date ever (although they would later be recorded together live on numerous occasions, including the celebrated 1953 Massey Hall concert). This session was also Parker’s only studio encounter with the great Thelonious Monk. Two further quintet sessions recorded by Bird for Verve during the same period, one of them featuring Miles Davis on trumpet, have been added as a bonus.
