MG C-610: Bud Powell's Moods

[Front Cover] Label Type : black/silver Mercury type A trumpeter
Matrix Number : SIDE-A MGC-610A
SIDE-B MGC-610B



Comments

heavy-weight thick vinyl.

B-1 and B-2 can also be heard on Mercury 11069 / 11069x45. BTW, 11069 (78rpm) contains alternate version of B-1.

B-3 and B-4 can be also heard on Mercury 11083 / 11083x45.

Inside The Groove

Bud Powell's one of his greatest albums (later reissued as Clef MGC-739 and Verve MGV-8115 “The Genius Of Bud Powell”)

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

Too-famous recordings, two by the trio, the rest by his own solo. How could we explain the gruesome, awesome, stained play of “Parisienne Thorofare” and “Tea For Two”?

Again, the cover artwork was done by David Stone Martin - great!

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

10000 (or even more) out of 10
