    I first became acquainted with “Rocker” as one of the so-called “Birth Of The Cool” sides under the nominal leadership of Miles Davis.

    But this reminds me how much I love the Parker With Strings recordings.

    What a bonanza for Mulligan, West Coast, Parker fans. Thank you, Doug, and also for the introduction to Jeff Sultanof’s ouvre, I’d missed the Rugulo and Garcia items. What a contributor to the pleasure of others. Thank you.
