The Parkerilla If you think it's a little early for a concert album by Parker, who's not exactly Peter Frampton on the rackjobber circuit, you're right, but only if you view this-three live sides plus one 33-rpm single (the fourth version of "Don't Ask Me Questions" Parker has put on disc)-as music, or product. Regard it instead as a gambit designed to terminate his contract with Mercury. The music that fleshes out the gambit has a nice intensity that gets left out of those nasty rumors.
