Bud Powell, live from Birdland, New York in 1953, across three performances dated February 7th and 14th, and March 7th. Despite suffering from serious mental health problems and addictions, Earl 'Bud' Powell was one of the leading architects of modern jazz, playing alongside Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk and many others, and considerably extended the vocabulary of jazz piano. Recorded at New York's legendary Birdland club, for broadcast on WJZ-FM, the superb performances captured on this set find him at the height of his powers. The entire WJZ-FM broadcast is presented here, digitally remastered, with background notes and images.
