2014 release. Bud Powell ranks as one of the most influential pianists in jazz history, his style having provided the template for innumerable bebop pianists who followed in his wake. This remastered three-CD set captures Powell at his peak on his home turf at the famed Birdland club, recorded onsite (these are not air checks), and mostly working with top-notch sidemen such as Charles Mingus, Oscar Pettiford, Roy Haynes, and Art Taylor, along with guest appearances by Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie. Producer Michael D. Anderson fixed pitch problems and personnel listings that have plagued previous versions of some of this material from the collection of Boris Rose as issued on other labels.
