|On a cold November evening in 1980, 3000 jazz fans filled the Salle Wilfrid Pelletier Hall of Place des Arts in Montreal, Quebec to attend what promised to be, a swinging evening featuring six of the biggest names in bebop. Billed The Concert of the Century - A Tribute to Charlie Parker, and under the direction of Dizzy Gillespie - one of the best jazz trumpeters of all time - the event featured legendary performers: Hank Jones - piano, Ray Brown - bass, Milt Jackson - vibes, Philly Joe Jones - drums and James Moody on tenor sax and flute. Local club owner Roue Doudou Boicel, who produced the concert, had the foresight to record the concert in its entirety. A limited quantity bootleg LP of the concert soon appeared and then disappeared from the marketplace, those tapes lay dormant for over 30 years. Concert of the Century, pristinely restored and remastered, features two tracks that weren't on the original pressing from the early '80s - Ralph Rainger's "If I Should Lose You" and an incredible eight minute bass solo by Ray Brown. Featured on the Justin Time Essentials Collection - it will be available as a 180 gram deluxe 2LP gatefold.|
