The biggest problem I have with this is the quality. Besides that, the solos were expressive and I feel like Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie work really well together.


Charlie, Russell, Dizzy, Buddy and Monk on one LP. This is awesome!


Song Journey part 3 (listening to a random album from 1950 to 2022)

A collab album between Charlie Parker (who i listened too in 1950) and Dizzy Gillespie, I think this didn't reach it's full potential, I felt like it was nice, but it felt a bit lacking. The 2 work nice together, and the solos are nice, but something just seems, off... I did really enjoy Passport and An Oscar for Treadwell though.
