Bud Powell - 1962 Stockholm Oslo
Cat. no: SCCD36041
Release Date: 10 Dec 2021
“Bud was a genius piano player - the best there was of all the bebop piano players” - Miles Davis
“If I had to choose one single musician for his artistic integrity, for the incomparable originality of his creation and the grandeur of his work, it would be Bud Powell. He was in a class by himself" - Bill Evans ‘Bud Powell 1962’ is something SteepleChase have been obsessed with for a while. The previous release ‘Bud Powell 1962 Copenhagen’ (SCCD36040) was from the recordings made at the Danish Radio Concert Hall and Jazzhus Montmartre.
What we have here is from the same year from the fabled Golden Circle where SteepleChase’s 5-volume releases ‘At The Golden Circle’ come from. The Swedish part of this release were recorded two days prior to those SteepleChase releases. Bud Powell travelled on to Oslo, Norway the same year to perform some memorable tracks captured here before going back to USA for the last time.
