In 1951, Charlie Parker's music reached a commercial high, but he was seriously ill. This CD opens with an all-star session that reunited the leader with Miles Davis (they had last recorded together in 1948). On "She Rote" and "K.C. Blues," Parker shows that he was still able to create music of the very highest order. On the other hand, the next date was not really an artistic success, but the record "Charlie Parker Plays South Of The Border" sold very well. He made a new version of "Lover Man," and his first recording of Ram Ramirez' great ballad was made in 1946. In early 1952, Granz recorded Parker for the third time with a string section. The last session picks up the "South of the Border" concept with the star in better shape.
