April 08, 2005|From Associated Press

Music by Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Stan Getz and others will be reissued by Koch Records Nashville, which has acquired the Charlie Parker Records catalog.

Charlie Parker Records, named for the influential jazz saxophonist, operated from the late 1950s to the mid-'60s. The catalog was owned by music producer Aubrey Mayhew. Terms of the deal, which includes music publishing company Charlie Parker Music, weren't disclosed.

Nick Hunter, general manager of Koch Records Nashville, said there are about 55 albums in the catalog and some unreleased material. The roster includes works by Cecil Payne, the Orioles, Miles Davis, Barney Kessel and Pete Jolly. "Very little of this stuff has ever been out on CD before," he said.
