This has probably already been posted here, but if it has, I couldn't find it. It doesn't really sound like a serious practice session, but more like Parker running through some exercises during a discussion. The conversation is barely audible, but I can definitely hear Parker's voice here and there. I thought it was interesting...especially the excerpt from exercise #23 of the Klose book, and running through some scales at the end.

I have that entire recording

He was talking to what seems to be one or two people about practising. Encouraging them to learn all their scales.

It's VERY difficult to hear but one of the quotes Bird said was "you see, once you stop wanting to learn things, you don't advance anymore... you know." and he said the old standby Music is Melody, Harmony, Rhythm, and that you could take that anywhere.

Yeah I'll post it up. It's an excellent document. Damn near un-listenable though, so I'll post the original, and post a modified version I'll mess around with some EQ.

Yup, quite a few of em. Philology.

Some of the stuff is stuff that's already out there, like Bird at Cafe Society, *has one of the RARE moments of Bird playing April in Paris and Just Friends without strings.*

One volume has a live version of DEXTERITY. Get that. Damn near non listenable tho but wow what a document. Played VERY fast. I'll post that with the lesson recording, look for it no later than the weekend.
