Charlie Parker on Dial

A show which celebrates the genius of saxophonist Charlie ‘Bird’ Parker, focusing on just two years of his life – his period with Ross Russell’s Dial record label. These years – 1946-47  - produced many of the legendary Parker sides, from Night in Tunisia to Scrapple From The Apple, and established the ground rules of the new music, ‘bebop’.  Pianist and arranger Alex Webb evokes these classic recordings with a stellar band fronted by Nathaniel Facey (alto sax) and Freddie Gavita (trumpet). Special guest, vocalist Vimala Rowe celebrates the early work of Sarah Vaughan, the singer closest to the beboppers.
'
'If Bird couldn’t make it, altoist Nathaniel Facey seemed like the next best thing, handling these time-honoured, zippy ensemble parts with aplomb ...  Webb’s men had it down, tight and purposeful, with trumpeter Freddy Gavita up for the task, thoughtful and poised, and Webb himself showing a neat turn at the keyboard...'
