As the title implies, this album was a collaboration between jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker (Bird) and jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie (Diz). Theolonious Monk can be heard on the album as well. Recorded mostly in 1950, it was released in 1952. Samuel Chell says that the album is characterized by the “singularly aggressive and competitive playing” of Parker and Gillespie and that energy comes through!
