Town Hall, New York City June 22 1945 is a live recording of the Dizzy Gillespie Quintet featuring Charlie Parker.
Incredibly this album had to wait sixty years before it was released in June 2005.
It also features Don Byas (saxophone), Al Haig (piano), Curley Russell (bass) and Max Roach (drums).
This is a historic time. The Second World War in Europe had come to an end in May 1945 although it continued in the Pacific until September.
