    "Bud was the most brilliant that a spirit might be, a unique genius in our culture." – MAX ROACH "Bud is a genius." – CHARLIE PARKER "He laid down the basis of modern jazz piano." – DIZZY GILLESPIE "Bud is a genuine genius." – DUKE ELLINGTON

    "No one could play like Bud; too difficult, too quick, incredible!" – THELONIOUS MONK "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 "He was the foundation out of which stemmed the whole edifice of modern jazz piano. Every jazz pianist since Bud either came through him or is deliberately attempting to get away from playing like him." – HERBIE HANCOCK

    Stalled by alcoholism, drugs, primitive mental health treatment and tuberculosis, was indeed that of the jazz musician maudit, a troubled combination of "prowess and pathos", regardless one of the twentieth century`s most beautiful and fiercely adventurous musical minds.

    I love Bud - but Monk sounds more like today.

    I'm influenced, amazed and inspired by so many artists whose contributions were MONUMENTAL to the jazz idiom. However, if I was only allowed to name one person who, directly and indirectly, contributed the most to advancing the jazz idiom, (inc. modernizing jazz piano), I pick Bud Powell. Without him, would we have had Bill Evans? McCoy Tyner? Chick Corea? Keith Jarrett, to name a few? Please correct me if I'm wrong. I believe I'm fairly learned in this area, but by no means am I a scholar or historian. To the best of my knowledge, he was one of the first, if not the first pianist to conceptualize "King Parker's" blazing tempos, exquisitely executed melodies and contrafacts using a linear approach. It's likely this is why he was dubbed "Charlie Parker of the piano." Bud contributed SO much to the jazz idiom and to the advancement of contemporary piano performance in his short tragic life! It's an OUTRAGE his genius was never recognized much less appreciated while he was alive!

    Why does everyone now play Monk tunes while so many Bud Powell compositions remain obscure? The two composer/pianists (along with Elmo Hope) were very close lifelong friends . Bud's heyday found Monk in obscurity, Monk was granted jazz sainthood postumously, with his work now required listening in any high school/college jazz course and necesary to know at any jam session. But why dont Bud's gems like the ballads "I'll Keep Loving You" and "Time Waits" get the respect of "Ruby My Dear" or "Ask Me Now"? I've made many musician friends who know Monk when I introduce them to obscure Bud Powell tunes like "Buster Rides Again", "I'm In the Mood for a Classic", or "Jump City" for the first time.

    simply the greatest jazz pianist the world has ever known. An absolute tragedy that he hasn't gotten the limelight. He deserves the same recognition as Monk.

    Wherever even some folks today find T. Monk's music not so easy to swallow doesn't take away from the fact that without Monk we wouldn't have had the wonder and genius that was Bud Powell.

    Peculiar that, because of the inept way that one of Bill Cunliffe's albums has been up-loaded to, a lot of the plays in the charts aren't of Bud Powell at all.

    One of the greatest of all time, his version of 'Embraceable You' on 'Jazz At Massey Hall Vol.2' is really magnificant.

    Composer, pianist Bud Powell is recognized as the most influential virtuoso modern jazz. His music is a quest for the absolute.

    A tormented genius on the level of Thelonious Monk, with incredible technique and ideas. I often wonder what amazing things we would've heard from Mr. Powell if he hadn't suffered the business end of a policeman's nightstick.
