Celebrating over 60 years as home to the catalog of one of the most important figures in jazz, Savoy Jazz releases "The Genius of Charlie Parker." The specially-priced deluxe 2-disc set compiled by Savoy Jazz Senior Director of A&R Joshua Sherman includes the best recordings from his years on Savoy Jazz and Dial Records digitally re-mastered from the original sources. Studio tracks as well as the best of his live performances at New York's premiere club at the time, The Royal Roost, make up this stellar collection. "The Genius of Charlie Parker" also includes classic Parker photos and extensive liner notes by Orrin Keepnews, Dick Katz, Loren Schoenberg and others.
