Recorded in Boston in early 1954


Did you know that Paul Desmond once interviewed Charlie Parker - and the tape exists?

Now you do and here it is.

This is the only fragment of the tape remaining, but what a fragment it is.

I could weep at the intelligence and seriousness of this young man knowing that at the time of this recording he had only one year left in his short life.
