    Charlie Parker's digital discography is peppered with collections using the words "April in Paris" as part of the title. Released in 2000, Blue Night's budget edition contains only about 45 minutes of music extracted from Bird's Verve catalog, the body of works that map much of his progress during the last few years of his short life. The 12 recordings that make up this little taste were made under the supervision of Norman Granz between November 30, 1949 and March 31, 1954 and feature such brilliant improvisers as Coleman Hawkins, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Red Rodney, Max Roach, and Roy Haynes. Charles Parker is also backed by orchestras operating under the leadership of Joe Lippman, Jimmy Carroll, and Gil Evans. While literally dozens of better Charlie Parker samplers are available, if you have bumped into a copy of Blue Night's April in Paris you should probably snap it up so as to have ready access to a pediatric dose of Bird on Verve. ~ arwulf arwulf
