Bud Powell Jazz At Massey Hall Vol 2 1953

Jazz At Massey Hall Vol 2 is a live album by the Bud Powell Trio.

It is a sister album of Jazz At Massey Hall by The Quintet of Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, Charles Mingus and Max Roach.

In the middle of the concert, the Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie left the stage for a performance of piano jazz which is now included on a Complete version of Jazz At Massey Hall.

Playing at the Massey Hall tracks are:

Bud Powell – piano,
Charles Mingus – bass,Max Roach – drums.

The latest versions of the album include two sets of bonuses:

  • 4 tracks of Powell, George Duvivier (bass) and Art Taylor (drums) from a 1953 nightclub gig, and
  • 4 tracks of pianist Billy Taylor with Charles Mingus. (this is a strange extra as it doesn’t include the headline artist Bud Powell and one tune appears in three versions.)
