Bud Powell (1924-1966) was one of the true geniuses of modern jazz piano. Along with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, and a few others, Powell changed the conception of jazz in the mid-1940s, with the arrival of bebop. He experienced serious health problems throughout his life, and was committed to a mental hospital from late 1951 to early 1953. After a brief and fruitful period in NParis, he came back to the United States, where alcohol abuse led to his untimely death. "The Genius of Bud Powell" (Verve Records MGV- 8115) finds the pianist still in full control of hisskills in a brilliant series of unaccompanied piano solos and trios. Three further complete Powell LPs, "Jazz Giant" (Verve Records MGV8153), "Piano Interpretations" (Verve Records MGV-8167) and "Blues in the Closet" (Verve NRecords MGV-8218), all of them recordedduring the same period for Norman Granz, have been added as a bonus.
Recorded in New York, between 1949 and 1956.
