This is an enjoyable mainstream jazz session
from 1955.(These and his other recordings
from the mid 50s are available under his name
on the "Complete Roost Sessions".)
I'd never heard of Powell, but he seems to have
had a long busy career with big bands (Goodman,
Herman), studio sessions, television work,
singers etc. In the late '60s and early '70s
he played with Gato Barbieri and Dizzy Gillespie,
even adding "sweetening" to one of Albert Ayler's
"rock" records. A very versatile musician, he
played on soul music sessions with Groove
Holmes & Billy Preston and was backed up
on his own recording in 1973 by Bernard
Purdie and Cornell Dupree.
An amazing career...

MOJO-TRUE, POWELL DID A LOT OF WORKS BUT NOT ALWAYS 1ST QUALITY, OFTEN FAR FROM THAT, I THINK THAT THE ROOSTS ARE HIS BEST WORK ON RECORD... DANIEL
