    Peter Pullman visited WBGO's Jazz From The Archives last fall to discuss his new book Wail: The Life of Bud Powell with historian Dan Morgenstern.  This two-hour special delves into the mysterious life and musical brilliance of the late piano player.  Listen to parts I and II of the special below.  Pullman and I also collaborated on this NPRMusic feature about 5 essential Bud Powell performances.  Enjoy!
