Amazingly gifted pianist with incredible technique. Some contemporary jazz musicians of the era thought he might have supenatural powers - his playing was so sublime. Went through life with his fair share of personal problems and faced many difficulties (as most black jazz musicians did at the time). His playing combines the immediacy of improvisation backed up by an obvious countless thousands of hours of practise.... a free-flowing gush of creativity and ideas - seemingly effortlessly performed.
A really good book to read is Dance Of The Infidels: A Portrait Of Bud Powell by Francis Paudras .... and the more recent one, Wail, by Peter Pullman is meant to be good too although I've not read that one yet.
I'm not an expert on Bud or jazz .... just a keen listener. I thought I'd post this here as there's no comments on the man - I thought he deserved at least a few lines.
