A better album title: Bud Powell Meets the Messengers
(5 out of 5 stars)

"An important and exciting Paris meeting in which the great Bud Powell jammed with the likes of Lee Morgan/Wayne Shorter Messengers. Highly recommended."
Bud Steals the Show
Samuel Chell | Kenosha,, WI United States | 05/30/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The audio mix is far from ideal, and the program is one of those loosely structured sessions that no doubt was a lot of fun for those on hand. For someone who already has a representative selection of Blakey sides from this period, the primary attraction is definitely the presence of Bud Powell. He plays beautifully on both of his turns (the two tracks with Walter Davis Jr. are mostly dismissable), executing with the legendary melodic invention and flowing precision that had begun to elude him about this time (1961). Moreover, the piano is recorded clear and true. Too bad there wasn't more of it."
A great performance

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was a hot night in Paris for all concerned. Bud Powell does indeed play beautifully and with fire. It is very exciting to hear him with this great edition of the Messengers on his own tunes "Bouncing With Bud" and "Dance of the Infidels." He solos at length; anyone who loves Bud Powell should really pick this up without reservation. I would like to add to the other reviewers' comments that the other guest, French saxophonist Barney Wilen, was a rare and underrecognized talent, and his solos here on alto saxophone (instead of his customary tenor) are full of imagination, fire and individuality."
