Been obsessed with this track lately. You must hear Lee Konitz's version with valve trombonist Marshall Brown.

Charlie Christian - Swing to Bop (5/41)

Amazing "field recording" of the master performing live at the legendary Minton's Playhouse in 1941 with Kenny Clarke on drums and Thelonious Monk on piano. Thanks to Fernando Ortiz de Urbina for recommending this a long time ago.
