"Rollins captures Bird's feel on the first side and pays homage on the second side with a medley of tunes identified with Parker."
- JazzWax.com

On this 1956 session, Sonny Rollins pays tribute to Charlie Parker with a collection of standards associated with Parker. This album was recorded less than a year after Parker's death and kicks off with a side-long medley of seven songs. Adding authenticity, trumpeter Kenny Dorham and drummer Max Roach,who both played on several of Parker's own recordings, appear on this album.

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!
