Format: Audio CD
The music on this set is truly excellent, and for the most part the remastered sound is a noticeable improvement over previous CD releases of this material. The many alternative takes make for very interesting comparative listening, and quite a few of them are as good as or even better than the respective master takes (often Parker's solo is more interesting on one of the alternative takes, while the master offers a more polished performance by the band as a whole). If judging the music alone, I would certainly give the set five stars.

Unfortunately, there are some problems with the way Savoy has presented this music. The discs are packaged in cardboard sleeves attached to a spiral binder, and the sleeves are so tight that it is very difficult to remove the discs from them. To avoid scratching the discs, it would be best to take them out of the binder and store them in plastic jewel cases. Additionally, in the accompanying booklet, the track information is incorrect for a number of tracks on discs seven and eight. As of this writing, you can get a corrected track listing by contacting Savoy at inquiries@savoyjazz.com.

A more serious problem is that at least some copies of the set are still being sold with a defective version of disc four, on which most of the tracks are recorded about 10% too fast. If you already have the set, you can determine whether your copy of disc four is defective by checking the timing of the master take of "Donna Lee" (track 13): if the timing is 2:35, you have the pitch-corrected disc, but if it is 2:22, you have the defective disc and need to get a replacement. As of this writing, you can do that by contacting Savoy at inquiries@savoyjazz.

For the longest time, I had a big hole in my jazz music collection because I didn't have even one CD of Charlie Parker's music. I simply couldn't figure out where to start. After much research and hemming and hawing, I settled on this set. The The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings: Eighth Edition (Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings) lists the Dial sessions as part of its core collection, but my experience with buying jazz music has always been that more is better, and I was proven right in purchasing this set. I have to say, this is one of the most satisfying sets of music that I own, ranking right up there in listenability and completeness with The Complete Ella Fitzgerald Song Books. The diversity of styles, the lift-off of be-bop, and a cavalcade of jazz superstars including Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, J.J. Johnson, and more, are all here in this 8-CD set. The thoroughness of this collection is almost overwhelming in its depth and breadth. Some people could probably do with a condensed version of just the master takes, but the alternate takes, false starts, and incomplete takes are really what make this collection so fascinating. (And it is easy enough to push the skip button on the CD player if you don't want to hear the extras.) Really, I knew that Charlie Parker was good and that his music was a must have, but I had no idea how good he was until I got this set.Read more ›

I love music from Savoy and Dial labels.

Sound on this box is for me very good, but session with Dizzy Gillespie (February 28,1945)has more worse sound as Definitive box set.

Packaging on this set is worst I ever seen.

I have problems with defective disc 4 too, but Savoyjazz send me correct version (on savoyjazz is address) without problems.

A wonderful piece of Jazz history and must have for any real Jazz collection. I recently received this set and I'm loving it. Parker's solos are just unbelievable so don't worry about the multiple takes of the some song they are all very different. My set didn't come with the defective 4th disc but it did come with a defective 8th disc, there is a small bump on the playing surface that prevents several songs form playing and causes the disc to freeze up. I'm in the process now of exchanging it for a good copy. This is still a great set that I really must have in my collection so I will keep trying until I get a good copy. Just be sure to play all your discs right away so you have time to return them if they need to be.

just fantastic, got this on the lightning deal, always new charlie was great, just never fully got it, my favorite jazz players(sun ra, roland kirk, charles mingus, duke ellington) have always had a more lyrical style, the simple basic chants and move music. so with this collection, i am growing and appreciating jazz on a complete different level. the rythym, tempo aned style, not to mention all the players(dizzy, miles,max roach) its overwhelming to me, and birds sax is just fantastic, perfect journeys. his playing is so intense, i never really know if his solos are ending or begining, or if they have a solo at all, five stars for the the music, five stars for the education.
