Bud Powell's Genius Of


"Genius Of" underscores the unparalleled mastery of Bud Powell, a jazz pianist often credited for redefining the role of the instrument in modern jazz. In the midst of the bebop era, where the frantic pace and complex harmonies challenged even the best musicians, Powell stood out as a beacon of innovation.

Key Features:

  • Bebop Pioneer: Bud Powell, with his virtuosic technique and profound understanding of harmonies, played a pivotal role in shaping the bebop sound, elevating the piano from a rhythmic background instrument to a front-and-center lead role.

  • Emotionally Charged Pieces: Tracks like "Hallucinations [Budo]" and "Oblivion" are powerful expressions of Powell's inner struggles, reflecting the tumultuous events in his life.
