Burnside Album Details

Powell, Bud, Eternity

Bud lives! Jazz giant Bud Powell would have been 80 years old on September 27, 2004. In commemoration, Piadrum Records has released “Eternity”, a collection of never before released solo piano performances recorded from 1961 to 1964 in Paris at the homes of Francis Paudras, who took Powell under his care for several years. This album emphasizes the power of one spirit driven to live through his music. This compilation exhibits the greatest qualities of Powell’s life, rendering a last but beautiful performance. “Eternity” is the title of a poem that Bud wrote on his bedside at King County Hospital a week before he passed away in 1966.
