USM are pleased to announce the latest addition to our Verve 60 campaign, “Unheard Bird”; a comprehensive two-disc set featuring previously unknown music – 58 never listed studio takes from Charlie Parker.

Originally issued on Mercury and Clef, but ultimately housed on Verve, the Parker/Granz studio collaborations were well-designed and thoughtfully conceived to display Bird’s unparalleled talents in a variety of contexts. These included Parker’s four to six piece ensembles (both working and pick-up groups); Latin Jazz efforts, some of which were labeled “South of the Border;” the orchestral Charlie Parker including his masterpieces with strings; standard Big Band; and Parker’s prescient view of the Third Stream. Unheard Bird touches on all of these, including a couple of brief false starts on “If I Should Lose You” that were not included in the remarkable 2015 companion set, Charlie Parker With Strings: Deluxe Edition.
