Charlie Parker On Dial focuses on just two years of Bird’s hectic life – the period he recorded with Ross Russell’s Dial label, producing classics such as Ornithology, Night in Tunisia, Relaxin’ at Camarillo, Scrapple From The Apple and Klacto-veeseds-tene – and revolutionising 1940s jazz in the process.

Featuring a band of top-notch musicians led by Nathaniel Facey (alto sax), with Freddie Gavita (trumpet), Aliocha Thevenet (guitar), Shaney Forbes (drums), Alex Davis (bass) and Alex Webb (piano). Making a special guest appearance is vocalist Camilla Beeput, who recently portrayed jazz singer Gloria Dee in the TV series Grantchester and has also appeared in Peep Show, Doctors and Lunch Monkeys.
