HASH(0x947a0e28) out of 5 stars Bud changing his style? 3 Oct. 2003
By G. Schramke - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This session is quite unsimilar to Bud Powell's earlier and even later recordings. It seems like if Bud had spent some time listening to the recordings done by younger guys like Sonny Clarke. Most of Bud's originals for this session are written in a minor key, and stylistically he uses a more hard-boppish, "funky" touch, especially on "Duid Deed", "Danceland" and "Gettin'There". Ohter tunes like "Down with it", based on Dizzy Gillespie's "Be-Bop", also featuring Paul Chambers with a great arco-solo, or "Crossin'the Channel" sound much more like typical Bud Powell-stuff. By the way: "Crossin'the Channel" turned out to be the only tune on that album, which "survived" on terms of entering in Powell's repertoire on life performances. "Comin'up" as the longest track (with a shorter alternative take as bonus) is another example of Powell playing latin-based material (others are "Un Poco Loco" and "Buster Rides Again" on earlier BlueNote-albums).
This recording from late 1958 was Bud's last session as a leader for BlueNote (5 years later he played with Dexter Gordon on "Our Man in Paris")

HASH(0x95478828) out of 5 stars Bud's "Scene Changes" Again 17 Sept. 2003
By Michael Brad Richman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
"The Scene Changes" is a classic jazz trio album by one of the great jazz pianists of all time. While Bud Powell's best recordings for Blue Note are from the late 40s and early 50s in my opinion (captured on the two volumes of "The Amazing Bud Powell"), this is one of three sessions he made for the label in 1957-58. (The other two are "Bud!" and "Time Waits," and while the former is hard to find as a single issue, all of the above sessions are available as part of "Bud Powell - The Complete Blue Note and Roost Recordings.") The hallmark of Bud's second stint at Blue Note for me is the wonderful sound of these recordings. It might just be the difference between the mono recordings of five and ten years earlier, and the distinct stereo sound of the late 50s, but it makes the music come to life. You can even pick out Bud's trademark moans during his solos (which sometimes get a little old, but they are endearing nonetheless). Sure, his playing wasn't quite what was back in the day, but they are terrific nonetheless. Anyone interested in great piano trio jazz should be thankful that "The Scene Changes" is back in print courtesy of the RVG Edition series.
HASH(0x950eda08) out of 5 stars Bud's last Blue Note session 25 Nov. 2012
By Mike Tarrani - Published on
If you listen to the critics and pundits Bud's powers were waning by the time this album was recorded and released. However, if you listen to the sound samples on this page you will clearly hear that Bud was as powerful as ever. Indeed, some of the other reviewers perceptively described both changes and growth in style that are evidence of Bud's genius.

It is the changes in style that make this an important album to those of us who are hard core fans, as well as those among us who closely study his music and life.

This album was recorded in Rudy Van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ Studio on December 29, 1958, and he is backed by two great musicians in their own right: Paul Chambers on bass and Art Taylor on drums.

If you are a Bud Powell fan this is an album that you probably do not want to pass by. However before making a final purchase decision you may want to check out a fairly new 10-disc set titled Kind of Powell. This particular album is DISC Six in that set, which also includes a number of other full albums from Bud's career.

Bud Powell / The Scene Changes / The amazing Bud Powell: If Bud was worried about the new guys coming up, he doesn't show it. These compositions (his own) and these performances are as good as anything being done in 1958. This is a wonderful album. Five Stars

This was a real treat to listen to. I love the feel and songs on this album and listened to it two or three times continuously after I got it. Highly recommended.
