The final collaborative recording by Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie was the aptly named Bird and Diz recorded over various dates in 1949 and 1950. It was originally released as a 10 in. album and collection of 78-rpm records by Clef Records in 1952. In 1957, following Parker’s death, it was reissued by Verve Records in the Genius Of Charlie Parkerseries as No. 4 but for reasons best known to Granz he issued it without, ‘Passport’ and ‘Mohawk’; instead it had some alternate takes of other tracks.
