Charlie Parker with Strings was an album by jazz musician Charlie Parker, released by Verve Records in January 1995.The sessions place Parker in the context of a small classical string section and a jazz rhythm section, rather than his standard bebop quintet. They were Parker's most popular sellers during his lifetime, and were admitted to the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1988.

Famed American alto-saxophonist Dick Oatts combines with a rhythm section,

string quartet, two woodwind players under the musical direction of iconic kiwi jazz musician Rodger Fox will recreate this series of musical arrangements as well as adding new arrangements of “Parkers” Bebop era.
