"... Parker's jazz-classical fusion became a formula used repeatedly by jazz musicians to express a more relaxed, pop side and extend the music's reach ..."
- JazzWax.com

"... now considered a jazz classic ... it was, supposedly, Parker's favourite of his own recordings. Strings fascinated him and he welcomed the opportunity to record standards with a small string ensemble. The results are stunning, his liquid alto soaring over the tuneful and only occasionally stiff arrangements ..."
- All About Jazz

This reissue combines a pair of Charlie Parker's most popular recordings, two volumes titled Charlie Parker with Strings, recorded in 1949 and 1950. Unlike most of Parker's other albums, for these sessions he eschewed original tunes and stuck to standards by Cole Porter, the Gershwins, Jimmy McHugh and others, reimagined for a small string ensemble.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
