In Toronto the quintet performed brilliantly with asides for individual temperaments. And, fortunately, there was a tape machine present to record most that came to pass.

Asides aside, they blew music of startling quality that night. These were no golden days of bop, this commemorates no zenith of a style, but it is eloquent music played by five exceptional musicians, something of a distinction among jazz recording circles as a general rule.

Bud Powell was one of the most influential pianists in the history of jazz. Along with Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie he was instrumental in the development of bebop, and his virtuosity as a pianist led many to call him “the Charlie Parker of the piano”.

Bud was, and always will be, a main influencein the interpretation and understanding of true jazz playing on the piano. The way he bounces, sings and keeps a natural flow and incredible hard articulation in the swing and the way he speaks the melody line – is like a Baptist reverend spreading the good news at the service. It is like it is an ongoing universal flow that forces itself through him, and he can only serve it no matter the price. He speaks the truth about this music form and like Bach – you will stay touched as a listener or disciple for the rest of your life.
