Over 40 years after his death, it is surprising that previously unknown live recordings by Bud Powell are still being uncovered. This concert in Geneva, probably with two local musicians who were likely playing a gig with the pianist for the first and only time in their careers, finds the pianist in good form. The recording quality is only slightly muddy and over-modulated, though the music is enjoyable. In spite of using unfamiliar players, Powell is quite comfortable playing extended versions of a number of bop favorites, including "Hot House," "Jordu," and his own "Swedish Pastry." Two duets with tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin from 1960 are an added bonus with audio that is much clearer, sounding like a radio broadcast rather than an amateur taping. Powell is in top form in support of Griffin in a buoyant take of "Idaho" and even delves into a little stride and bop pyrotechnics in his solo. Recommended.
