2015 EU reissue on 180g 2LP=Chick Corea & Friends-Pianist Chick Corea in 1996 gathered together some notable young all-stars (tenor-saxophonist Joshua Redman, trumpeter Wallace Roney, altoist Kenny Garrett, bassist Christian McBride, plus veteran drummer Roy Haynes) for explorations of tunes by the innovative pianist Bud Powell. Although "Bouncin' With Bud," "Tempus Fugit" and "Celia" have been occasionally recorded by others, most of the complex songs (including "Mediocre," "Dusk In Sandi," "Oblivion" and "Glass Enclosure") have rarely been played in recent decades. Rather than play revivalist bebop, Corea and his associates (after authentically stating the melody) perform modern post bop improvisations in their own styles, so much of the music is way beyond bop. In addition to nine Powell songs, Corea contributed a song rightfully titled "Bud Powell." All of the talented musicians have a fair amount of solo space and sound consistently inspired, making this a very successful and easily recommended project.


best kind of a tribute album. Corea and a crackerjack group of accomplices have offered a beautiful homage to the late, great Bud Powell. What they do not attempt is a slavish recreation of Powell's bop-style. Instead, Corea and company make use of a handful of Powell's own compositions (as well as a couple of originals) but perform them in a decidedly post-bop manner: with considerable skill and boundless energy. Bud Powell must be smiling!
