74 minutes of Bird never released on any format before ! Recorded in July 1952 at Jirayr H. Zorthianís trash-strewn hilltop ranch in California, where the larger than life painter-sculptor regularly held wild, hedonistic parties that lasted for days. Those attending would include celebrities, intellectuals, artists, musicians, models, dancers & strippers.

Parkerís band included Frank Morgan, Don Wilkerson, Amos Trice, Dave Bryant, and Lawrence Marable - with Chet Baker providing trumpet on one track. Luckily someone had a tape recorder. A massive strip-tease was performed during Birdís version of “Embraceable You”.
