About this video:
"Get Happy" performed by Bud Powell, piano; Kenny Clark, drums; and Pierre Michelot, bass. Recorded in the Blue Note in Paris in 1959.
Astonishingly, at the time of this recording Powell was in declining health as the result of a vicious attack at the hands of a policeman. Powell had been struck in the head with a club when he attempted to intervene in a dispute between the police and Thelonious Monk backstage at a club in New York City.
