    Bud Powell

    Jazz88, NPR, and Jazz From the Archives commemorate a master of 88 keys:  Bud Powell.  Independent Bud Powell biographer Peter Pullman wrote a remarkable book about this king of bebop.  Pullman not only shared his five essential Powell recordings with NPR, but he recently sat down with the brilliant Dan Morgenstern for an interview on Jazz From the Archives.   Listen to the riveting one-hour special here.

    Coming Up:   Jazz From the Archives Part II with Dan Morgenstern and Peter Pullman.
