Charlie Parker Boxed Sets

Last updated August 2022

The Charlie Parker discography on this site contains listings for CDs almost exclusively, and in the "issues" section of the session listings I have concentrated on the more-or-less readily available domestic (US) and Japanese sources. As a result these sections are far from discographically complete. Many of Parker's studio recordings (for Dial, Savoy, and Emarcy/Clef/Mercury) were originally issued on 78s and/or 45s and/or 10" LPs, and only later on 12" LPs; and much of his "live and unissued" work was originally issued on privately-pressed LPs aimed at collectors. Since pre-LP versions are not readily available, and the LPs themselves are out of print, I have focused on the compact disc reissues of this material. Even here you have several alternatives, as indicated in the sections below. Many of the sets listed below are not included as separate entries in the Miles Ahead database, but for those that are, links will take you to the details.
