No.181: more quotes

I think i can add a couple of quotes. In Koko (1945, Savoy), part of Alphonse Picou clarinet solo on High Society is quoted by Bird. Then, on Embraceable you (Dial, 1947, master take), the famous six note phrase in which is based Parker’s solo comes (in my opinion quite clearly) from As time goles by (You must remember this...) Big hug. Emilio, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
