Listening to this recording gives us an insight into Lennie Tristano's comment about Bud Powell's matchless intensity.
At the moment I am enthralled with the trio selections featuring Bud with Roy Haynes and Oscar Pettiford.
What an incredible trio. People who have been accustomed to the relatively sedate sound of most of todays piano trios will be astonished
to hear the fiery intensity of Bud's.
These recordings give us a seat at a table up front, right next to those lucky people who were there hearing Bud Powell live.
