Town Hall, New York City, June 22, 1945

  • (Notes : Uptown Records UPCD 27.51 )
    I'm going to compromise my earlier entry on "Summit Meeting at Birdland" by posting this, but "The Early Bird Get's the Worm". This recording shows the easy flow of ideas that Bird had. Before Camarillo, Bird's Solo's flowed. After Camarillo, they yapped. "Summit" is still up on top of my list.(Bud Powell helps) However, In "Summit", Bird's "yapping". "Town Hall", Bird's flowing! The sound is damn good for it's time and you should grab a copy of this!
