Charlie Parker with Strings: The Master Takes CD

(English review is after Turkish one below)

Charlie Parker 40'lı yılların sonunda yaylılarla bir albüm yapma yönünde oldukça istekliydi ve bu isteğinin sonucunda 10' lik bir LP ortaya çıkar. Gerekli kayıtlar 30 Kasım 1949'da başlar ve sonuçta altı parçalık hepside caz standartlarından oluşan albüm efsanevi prodüktör Norman Graz yönetiminde çıkar.

Albümün başarısı 5 Temmuz 1950'da ek kayıtların yapılmasına sebebiyet verir ve bu da yine aynı isimle Charlie Parker With Strings adlandırılan ve sekiz caz standardından oluşan ikinci bir uzun çaların gelmesine sebep olur.

Verve Records bu ondört parçayı 1995'te bir CD'de toplar ve bunlara Parker'ın yaylılarla yaptığı on parçayı daha ilave eder. Bunların beşi 17 Eylül 1950'deki Carnegie Hall konserinden, dördü Ocak 1952'de yapılan ek stüdyo kayıtlarından ve sonuncusuda sınırlı sayıda yayımlanan 78 devirlik Norman Graz's Jazz Scene Carnegie Hall Aralık 1947 konserindendir.

Sessions were done from November 30, 1949, yielded the first Charlie Parker With Strings album, which was consisting of six songs total, all of which were standards and the producer was legendary Norman Granz.

The success of the first album caused to additional sessions on July 5, 1950, and brought another long-playing album also entitled Charlie Parker With Strings , consisting of eight tracks, also all standards.

Verve Records reissued these fourteen recordings for compact disc in 1995, including an additional ten tracks with Parker also accompanied by strings.
