The personal side of Bud
Erik Berkule | Decatur, GA United States | 06/22/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you wanted to know what it felt like to live with Bud Powell and have him play for you in your tiny Paris apartment, then this is the album for you. It's low recording and authentic voices heard throughout, this is the quintessential Bud Powell collector's album. He sounds free and adventurous because he had none of the pressures of a club or concert hall date to hinder his playing style.The reason for these recordings is outlined in a biography of Bud. The story of Bud, as told through the eyes and ears of Francis Paudras, who took Bud in and helped him regain himself, is called Dance of the Infidels. It is a wonderful read, and it provokes a lot of thought and desire to do more research into the music and life of, one, Bud Powell."
A revelation
Erik Berkule | 07/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Recorded in an intimate setting away from the pressures of audiences and concert halls, this "salon" recording of Bud Powell gently reveals what a great musician he was. It is as if you are sitting in his living room and he is playing for you. It is wonderful. Powell fans should find it."
