The people behind the Definitive Classics reissue label want you to become more familiar with classic early modern jazz. They also have a habit of issuing the same body of works more than once under different musicians' names. Case in point: the Complete Savoy and Dial Recordings of Miles Davis is almost entirely composed of material from sessions led by Charlie Parker. The exception would be the Miles Davis All-Stars (including Charlie Parker!) recorded on August 14, 1947; this was the trumpeter's very first session as a leader, and he was able to achieve it largely on the strength of his association with Yardbird Parker.

Combining the Charlie Parker/Miles Davis Savoy and Dial recordings is a good idea, and the cumulative effect of 44 classic bop sides is positively intoxicating, if you're susceptible to such things. Just be aware that if you already have the Charlie Parker Savoy and Dial recordings, you have everything that's been compiled onto this Definitive survey of early Miles Davis.
