Fakta Charlie Parker's engagement at Café Society took place
during the last year of this famous club's existence. Two
days before his stint began, on June 6, 1950, he had
recorded his last studio album with Dizzy Gillespie, the
celebrated Bird & Diz, which featured Thelonious Monk on
piano. During these months, as Bird himself announced,
he was playing with strings. However, for some reason
the Café Society didn't book him with strings but with his
quintet, featuring Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Al Haig on
piano, Tommy Potter on bass and Roy Haynes on drums.
All of the music recorded by Bird at the club is included
here, including his only known versions of "Bewitched"
and "Gone with the Wind", as well as an amazing version
of "Summertime", which is Parker's only reading of the
tune apart from the studio recording with strings.
