Recorded between 1947 and 1952, the Charlie Parker With Strings albums showcased the legendary bebop saxophonist performing standards and ballads backed by a small classical string ensemble and jazz rhythm section. Although somewhat controversial when first released, the strings sessions are largely considered landmarks for orchestral jazz productions and rank among the best albums in Parker's discography. The 2015 Verve anthology The Complete Charlie Parker with Strings brings together all three of Parker's original 78 rpm albums including Charlie Parker with Strings, Charlie Parker with Strings #2, and Charlie Parker Big Band, as well as every alternate take ever issued. Also included in the collection are 18 newly discovered alternate recordings never before released. ~ Matt Collar
