      Exactly what it promises: every song melody Charlie Parker ever wrote.

      Clearly notated.

      Yamaguchi notes clearly when one version of a tune was chosen over another. For instance, the version of Ornithology chosen is the live at the Royal Roost, which has different first and second endings compared to the studio version.
      Keep in mind this is a collection of songs Bird composed, not tunes he played on. So even though he played on Groovin' High, this tune is not included in the collection because Dizzy wrote it. Something to be aware of.
