Similar to the Powell set, I've always dug Barry Harris Trio - Chasin' the Bird

Jon Foley

A beautiful tribute to Bird which is just a single track is Lennie Tristano's "Requiem," recorded in 1955 after Bird died. Contrary to what you might expect from Tristano, it's just a beautiful, solemn slow blues solo piano track. I have it on the Mosaic Tristano box; it was originally on the Atlantic LP, "Tristano."
