Bud Powell: Bouncing With Bud

Bud Powell: Bouncing With Bud Bud Powell was living in Paris in 1962, when he visited Copenhagen and recruited bassist Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen and drummer William Schiopffe for the five-star trio session Bouncing With Bud. Previously released by Delmark in the U.S. and Storyville in Denmark, the album has been reissued by Mobile Fidelity on a great-sounding gold audiophile CD. Heaven knows, the ultra-influential pianist was being tormented by his demons in 1962, but that doesn't prevent him from giving 100% on such jazz standards as Tadd Dameron's "Hot House," Thelonious Monk's "Straight, No Chaser" and Denzil Best's "Move." Bouncing date is pure, unadulterated bebop, and except for Benny Golson's "I Remember Clifford," fast tempos prevail. How tragic that an improvisor this gifted never found peace during his lifetime.
