Bud Powell Is 88!

Let’s all listen to the genius of Bud Powell today on this, his eighty-eighth birthday.

I’ve gotten some support in my effort to get news of my book, Wail: The Life of Bud Powell, to the world:

Go to http://www.npr.org, search for music, and go to A Blog Supreme. You can hear the latest in its Take 5 series — five recorded performances by Bud!

Also, go to http://www.wbgo.org, and find the link to the Bud Powell programs that I recently did at the station with Dan Morgernstern. While the first of the two hours in which we played Powell’s music doesn’t air, on 88.3FM (Newark), till Sunday night (at 23:00 Eastern), you can hear it at the website right now.

HAPPY EIGHTY-EIGHTH, BUD.
