The Complete Savoy and Dial Studio Recordings 1944-1948 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

The 3 star rating for this fantastic box set only applies to the packaging which I will get to in a minute. All of this music has been available on cd for the past 10 years (with the exception of the outakes, 2nd and 3rd takes, etc.) and it is truly wonderful and deserves at least five stars. Especially in this package that with the latest remastering technology their speed have been restored to the correct pitch and they sound remarkably crisp and clear. Now I can not believe for a box set with a price tag of over $100.00 that the packaging is done so poorly. First of all you can easily tear out the cd sleeves by just trying to remove or put back the cd's in their sleeves, so be very careful. The box set cover and it's book are not of very good quality and I hope that it would last a few years! My second problem is why on each cd they've put all the 2nd, 3rd,..takes right after each other instead of putting them at the end. For example 4 takes of Billie's Bounce, Donna Lee, Constellation or 6 takes of Perhaps, 9 takes of Marmaduke back to back makes it almost impossible to listen to these CD's without Programming the cd player! Of course this might not be a big deal for you but for me this was quite an inconvenience. Again this is Parker's greatest work in my opinion and it sounds fantastic here.

Putting aside the unmatched transcendant musical genius part for a moment, this box set is great way to finally get all the historically pivotal recordings of Charlie Parker from about 1945 to 1948 or so. The liner notes, which aren't annoying, give the exact dates of the recordings which are arranged in beautiful chronological order, regardless of label. So if you're into Charlie Parker, this is a good way to sort of follow his progress through these years(in which he basically changed jazz). This includes the alternate takes, which(although they can make casual listening extremely annoying) allow for the study of Charlie Parker's process of editing and re-shaping solos into a perfect one or two chorus statements(which, it can be argued, were ultimately his true compostions). Also, buying the Savoy recordings(with alternates) will otherwise involve the buying of multiple cds in random date order and weird covers -- annoying! This box set is a good way to get all the Savoy, and Dial Bird with one throw of the stone(albeit for a hundred bucks).
