Bud Powell. Time Waits (1957)

Bud might not be absolutely at his prime here, in a recording date with Philly Joe Jones and Sam Jones, remastered by legendary engineer Rudy Van Geller, but this is a classic all the same. Partly I just really dig Philly Joe and am a connossieur of piano trios. I also like albums with no obviously weak spots, nothing that you have to skip over. There are also no overdone tunes like Summertime or Night in Tunisia here. It's not like I don't like those songs, but if you listen to a lot of jazz like I do you hear certain tunes over and over again.
