Incomplete set! - warning,
This review is from: Complete 1947-1951 Blue Note, Verve & Roost Sessions (Audio CD)Incomplete on both counts: Blue Note AND Verve!
While this product claims to be the complete Blue Note and Verve recordings by Bud Powell, it only contains 45 of the 75 tracks that another boxed set contains. The set you're looking for is called Bud Powell, The Complete Blue Note and Roost Recordings, item number CDP 7243 8 30083 2 2. It was published in 1994 under the Blue Note label by Capitol Records. It's four discs in total, 4.6hrs of music. Very clear personnel listings.
I just bought the set I'm describing, and I'm very happy with it.
Also note there is a separate Bud Powell Complete Verve with over 100 tracks. It is sold by Amazon and comes up immediately when you search via it's ASIN: B0000046TK.

So you give a 2 disc set of some of the best jazz music ever recorded 1 star because it's not as complete as you would like it to be? How ridiculous is that!?

Thanks for your comment. It saved me from buying the wrong item. It's clear the record companies don't do any fact checking and the people who package them probably don't know any better. Kind of like a publisher selling copies of "The Brothers Karamazov" with "Crime and Punishment" printed on the cover. Unprofessional at the very least.
