Who was Bud Powell?

"If I had to choose a single musician according to his artistic merit and the originality of his creation, but also for the greatness of his work, it would be Bud Powell. Nobody could measure up to him."

BILL EVANS

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.
