Charlie Parker - Constellation
From The Savoy Recordings / The Immortal Charlie Parker (session held in April 1948, example release: Doxy DOK218)

If you woke today hating yourself because you slept till 1pm, like me, this is the right thing to get you up. If you’re a sadist you’re also gonna be happy about the young Miles being tortured by Bird’s frantic tempos. 

  • Charlie Parker, as
  • Miles Davis, tr
  • John Lewis, p
  • Curley Russell, b
  • Max Roach, dr

Bud Powell - Hallelujah 
From Jazz At Massey Hall (1953, Debut Records DB-124)

Hard to write only Bud Powell as artist. As you all know on the “Jazz At Massey Hall” LP Bud plays together with Roach and Mingus. Hallelujah is one of the six tunes (including now famous takes of Lullaby of Birdland and Cherokee) that are performed in the trio. 

The catalog number given before is of the 1956 re-release since the album was originally released in form of two 10” (DLP-2/DLP-4).

  • Bud Powell, p
  • Charles Mingus, b
  • Max Roach, dr

Sadly this time it seems to be true. Horace Silver died yesterday in the age of 85. Rest In Peace.
