One of the most famous live recordings in jazz history this May 1953 concert from Toronto brought together five of bebops greatest figures in alto saxophonist Charlie Parker credited here as Charlie Chan in a purposely transparent attempt to sidestep Parkers exclusive recording arrangement with another record company trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie pianist Bud Powell drummer Max Roach and bassist Charles Mingus Released following Parkers death two years after the date the recording finds him in remarkable form his playing robust pointed and witty And although each participant is a band leader composer and groundbreaking stylist on his instrument the performance demonstrates that Parker remained first among equals Compositionally Jazz at Massey Hall leans heavily on the bebop book developed by Gillespie and includes Salt Peanuts Wee and A Night in Tunisia Also featured are Tadd Damerons Hot House the Ellington standard Perdido and All the Things You Are Initially released on Debut Records a label coowned by Mingus and Roach the sound quality is certainly of the time but has benefited over the years from digital technology Fred Goodman
