Charlie Parker & The Stars Of Modern Jazz, live at Carnegie Hall on Christmas Eve, 1949. Regarded by many as the apex of the bebop era, this remarkable Christmas concert featured a virtual who's-who of contemporary jazz giants, from Miles Davis and Stan Getz to Sarah Vaughan and Max Roach. But it's Charlie Parker who steals the show, with his legendary quintet, culminating in a heart-stopping rendition of "Ko Ko". Also features the following as bandleaders: Bud Powell, Kai Winding, Jimmy Jones, Lennie Tristano and Lee Konitz. Originally broadcast on WMCA Radio as Stars Of Modern Jazz, and MC'd by "Symphony Sid" Torin. The entire broadcast is presented here with background liner notes and images. Digitally remastered for greatly enhanced sound quality. An essential for all serious jazz fans.
