Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Posthumous Charlie Parker appearance?
D'oh. I took the date off the photo ... should'a known better.Probably more like 1946, after JC got out of the army and joined Dizzy's band.
A little more research shows that Tommy Potter was in Parker's combo from 1947-50, so that narrows it down a little.
I bet no one will read this comment on such an old post but I've (apparently) pinpointed the date on the photo. From the bird and diz liner notes:"My research has discovered that it was taken Monday, February 13, 1950 at Birdland when Parker and Gillespie were reunited during a benefit for singer Buddy Stewart's family (Stewart had died in an auto accident)." - Phil Schaap
You bet wrong, Chuck! Thanks for digging up that info!
Of course Blogger, in its infinite wisdom, won't let me correct anything before 2009, it seems.
