Bebop holiday

From a special performance recorded live in New York on December 25, 1948.

Among the first in a series of broadcast recordings made at the New York’s “Royal Roost” club between December 1948 and March 1949 this recording provides an accurate account of Bird’s live playing from the period with the added spirit of the holiday season.
