DIAL session, When I listened to jazz first time, I rented Charlie Parker CDs at the CD rental store. These CDs are "CHARLIE PARKER STORY ON DIAL Vol.1,2"(TOSHIBA EMI).
I remember I listened to it over and over. My first impression on it was "These are low sound quality." But later I found it that Dial session was one of the most high quarity Bird's sources... For that JAZZ inspired HARD BOP for me in those days, I felt Parker's sources corny.
Even so, I enjoyed swingin' on the music.

At this late date, I think that...
I could not see the value of this music.
I could not see the consequence of the fact that the absolutely valuable sound was given off ad infinitum.

"Crazeology". I feel Parker's will in this source that he would give us the energy of the music to the fullest.
