That quote from Charlie Watts in the liner notes sums up the feeling of this album. This is a warm and wonderful souvenir of Charlie Watts' obsession with Bird and his music, meant as a companion piece to his 1964 children's book, "Ode to a High Flying Bird," and recorded in 1991. Five new songs composed by alto sax player Peter King and two Parker originals ("Bluebird" and "Relaxing at Camarillo") make a short but thoroughly entertaining set of biographical and musical sketches. While this album's fine on its own, it will make you track down the Bird originals! (Amazon review).
