The second of two-LP sets released by Polygram in the late '70s in their Bud Powell on Verve reissue series has many very interesting performances that are frequently both powerful and erratic. The great bop pianist is heard with four separate trios (matched up with bassists Lloyd Trotman, George Duvivier, Percy Heath and Ray Brown, and drummers Art Blakey, Art Taylor, Max Roach and Osie Johnson); the 28 selections include four alternate takes that had been previously unissued. All of the music has since been reissued on Verve's massive Bud Powell box. Neil Tesser's liner notes are quite honest and accurate in their assessment of this music's strengths and failings.
