Bud Powell Trio – Bouncing with Bud

Bud Powell Trio – Bouncing with Bud
EAC rip | FLAC + CUE + LOG | Full Scans | FileSonic/FileServe
Genre ~ Bop, Piano Trio | Label ~ StoryVille/MFSL

This Delmark recording is an excellent set by the great pianist Bud Powell in a trio with the teenage bassist Niels Pederson and drummer William Shiopffe. Recored in Copenhagen, the session features Powell exploring seven bop standards (including his own “Bouncing with Bud”) and “The Best Thing for You.” All eight selections (which put the emphasis on faster material other than “I Remember Clifford”) showcase Bud Powell during his European renaissance period, giving pianists a definitive lesson in playing bop. ~Allmusic
