|Pages/Publication Date:||82 / 2016|
By the late 1950s, Bud Powell had already staked his claim to being one of the finest jazz pianists of all time. Focusing on his incomparable trio work, the eight albums encompassed here on four discs include Swingin' with Bud, The Lonely One, The Scene Changes, Time Waits, Strictly Powell, and Blues in the Closet, reuniting Powell and Ray Brown on performances of "Now's the Time" and "52nd Street Theme." Flamboyant, grooving, and consistently impressive, the 85 songs here include "I Cover the Waterfront," "Woody 'n' You," "Off Minor," "Get It," "Somebody Loves Me," and "In the Blue of the Evening."
