Bud Powell – The Amazing Bud Powell, Volume 1
This product is currently sold out.
The reissues of the two albums titled The Amazing Bud Powell put the important recordings in chronological order and add some alternate takes. Although the latter is the best way to acquire the important performances, this LP gives one a strong sampling of pianist Bud Powell at his best. Powell is heard in a classic session with trumpeter Fats Navarro and tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins (which is highlighted by exciting versions of "Dance of the Infidels," "52nd Street Theme," and "Bouncing With Bud") and in a trio performing "Over the Rainbow" and three versions of his intense "Un Poco Loco."
