These previously unreleased solo piano performances were recorded by photographer Francis Paudras in France and are from an extensive tape collection owned by Celia Powell, Bud's daughter. Although Bud Powell's playing was erratic during the era, he is in generally excellent form on the 13 solos. The piano is not always perfectly in tune, but it is listenable and the recording quality is better than expected. While Powell's ballad renditions are intense, he sounds joyful on some of the uptempo pieces, particularly "Joshua's Blues." Other highlights include "A Night in Tunisia," "Someone to Watch Over Me," "Blues for Bouffémont," and "But Beautiful." This is a valuable addition to Bud Powell's discography and is well worth picking up.
