Newly Remastered for Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl!

Newly-remastered for vinyl as part of an overall Blue Note 75th anniversary vinyl reissue campaign spearheaded by current Blue Note Records President, Don Was.

The Amazing Bud Powell Volume 1 details two recording sessions. In the first, recorded on August 9, 1949, Powell performed in a quintet with Fats Navarro, Sonny Rollins, Tommy Potter and Roy Haynes, and in trio with Potter and Haynes. In the second, on May 1, 1951, Powell performed in trio with Curley Russell and Max Roach, and solo.

The initial track, Un Poco Loco, has been singled out by critics and cultural historians for its musical and cultural significance. Released in 1951, The Amazing Bud Powell is considered one of pianist Bud Powell’s most important recordings.

"...a strong sampling of pianist Bud Powell at his best."
