As part of Blue Note's Very Best series, pianist Bud Powell is spotlighted on 11 tracks recorded between 1949 and 1958. This set is aimed at the casual listener and includes the Powell-penned classics "Bouncing with Bud," "Dance of the Infidels," "Un Poco Loco," "Parisian Thoroughfare," and "Glass Enclosure." Backed by fellow Blue Note alumni Fats Navarro, Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, Arthur Taylor, Paul Chambers, Roy Haynes, and Philly Joe Jones, among others, makes this an excellent sampler for the novice at a mid-line price.
