Note: Track 4 is NOT clean for airplay. It has several spoken "motherfuckers" and a "fuck you."

Review: terrific concept: several leading jazz vocalists create songs based on Parker's tunes to tell a story about the man. And there are some fabulous performances here with outstanding sax solos on almost every track.
