TOP 500 REVIEWERon 12 April 2016
The great bop pianist/composer Bud Powell(1924-66) recorded this trio/quartet session for BLUE NOTE in New Jersey on August 3, 1957 with Paul Chambers(bass); Art Taylor(drums) and, on three tracks, Curtis Fuller(trombone).
Six of the nine tracks are Powell originals plus three standards featuring trombonist Curtis Fuller.
Highlights include the slow blues 'Some Soul', 'Blue Pearl'(2 takes), 'Bud on Bach' & Charlie Parker's 'Moose the Mooche'.
Although there are better Bud Powell albums, this RVG Edition(2002) of 'Bud!' should be heard by all admirers of the pianist's music.

The decline of Bud Powell's powers in his later years has been well documented. This album was recorded in 1957, and sadly it is no exception. Bud is a shadow of his former self. His genius has decomposed, his previously explosive bebop lines are now fumbled or incomplete. 'Bud On Bach' is a high speed but clumsy interpretation of Bach's 'Solfeggietto'. The only redeeming track is 'Blue Pearl', which is a return to the great pianist's former glory.
Bud's earlier works on Blue Note come highly recommended, but this one sadly does not.

I love Bud Powell, I think he is simply amazing! He is just one of the Jazz Legends I know of. His playing transports one to another World - the Jazz World! You just listen, and take it all in and "leave your worries on the doorstep!" A line from the song: "Sunny Side of the Street"!
