MG C-502: Piano Solos / Bud Powell

[Front Cover] Label Type : black/gold Mercury type A
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MG 35012A    C-102    C-502    1
SIDE-B MG 35012 B    C-102    502    1



Comments

Judging from matrix imprints/inscriptions, MG C-502 is a reissue of MG C-102, which is a reissue of MG-35012.

Inside The Groove

Bud Powell's too famous performances, including legendary “Tempus Fugue-It”. (all contents are later included on Verve MGV-8153 “Jazz Giant”)

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

This album is a compilation from Bud Powell's 1949-1950 sessions. Four performances are in a form of piano trio, while the rest of two are piano solos.

Especially the trio performances are masterpieces without any doubts. Listen to the perfect and gruesome performances heard on A-1 and A-3 - which proves Bud Powell is one of the important modern Jazz pianist ever!

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

10000 (or even more) out of 10
