AllMusic Review by

The influential bebop pioneer Bud Powell, who not only set the standard for bop pianists but largely invented the style, is heard on fine trio performances from 1951 (with bassist Curly Russell and drummer Max Roach) and 1953 (during which he is matched with bassist George Duvivier and drummer Art Taylor). Highlights include "A Night in Tunisia," "Reets and I," "I Want to Be Happy" and "Glass Enclosure."
