Bud Powell
Bud Powell in Paris
1964

Powell is to the piano what Charlie Parker is to the saxophone. As the first jazz pianist to play "bebop," Powell's influence is incalculable. In 1959 he moved to Paris, and in the years following he produced what are probably the best sides of his career. In Paris is a fine example of Powell's fluid, urgent style.
