4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Clarke G. Isackson on June 23, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book of Bud Powell piano pieces attests to the fact that Powell has pushed the limit of conventional jazz and gives the piano (not to mention your left hand) some extreme tests in solid, cool bebop. I always refer to his "Parisian Thoroughfare" and "Un Poco Loco" as the Bud Powell standard as a reference point of his piano style.

I find it hard to obtain a set of Bud's music in a format that I am comfortable playing. This book presents a rather rare collection of short representative scores with very interesting introductions to each piece - particularly the Parisian Thoroughfare. The chord structures for Parisian Thoroughfare in this book are close to other transcriptions I have seen as well as that produced by Audioscore when run against Bud's solo of the piece. With avid practice by experienced players, the piece can be mastered. I do have to comment that the scores in this book are rather difficult.

Bud Powell's Parisian Thoroughfare (on The Genius of Bud Powell, Solo) is introduced by a review of his life with Francis Paudras in Paris and references to the film, Round Midnight. Each piece has its introduction and interesting story about Powell and his approach to the tune.

There are tunes from Thelonious Monk and others transcribed to voicings as played by Powell. There is no CD. There are no lyrics. The book has 83 pages. There are 48 pages of music.
