Charlie Parker - Scrapple From the Apple
From Bird At The Royal Roost (1949, Savoy ZDS 4413)

A great version of Scrapple From the Apple! The theme is fun and after it there’s an incredible solo by Bird waiting for us who’ll take us on a flight in unseen tempos. Sad the only version of this exact take that was made on January 15 1949 for the Savoy label in New York’s famous Royal Roost is in poor state sound-wise. Still… I totally dig it.

  • Charlie Parker, as
  • Kenny Dorham, tr
  • Al Haig, piano
  • Tommy Potter, b
  • Joe Harris, dr

Note: As you may know it’s really hard to get proper information about Bird’s records regarding personnel, dates, location, labels etc.. To give you information as trustworthy as possible I use the Charlie Parker Discography Project as source: Link to the session index (Extensive version); Link to the album index (Extensive version). Links open in new window.
