Charlie Chan • Dizzy Gillespie • Bud Powell • Max Roach • Charlie Mingus - Jazz At Massey Hall download album
This concert was held at Massey Hall in Toronto, Canada on May 15, 1953, and was recorded by bassist Charles Mingus, who overdubbed some additional bass parts and issued it on his own Debut label as the Quintet's Jazz at Massey Hall. Charlie Parker (listed on the original album sleeve as "Charlie Chan") performed on a plastic alto, pianist Bud Powell was stone drunk from the opening bell, and Dizzy Gillespie kept popping offstage to check on the status of the first Rocky Marciano-Jersey Joe Walcott heavyweight championship bout.

It was the only time that the five men recorded together as a unit, and it was the last recorded meeting of Parker and Gillespie.

The performance was listed on Guardian’s 50 Greatest Moments in Jazz. Inducted into the GRAMMY® Hall of Fame, the jam session is widely considered the greatest jazz concert ever. Sonically, the recording has been improved 150%, thereby improving one of the treasures of the American Jazz Canon.
