New Day Jazz

Justin Desmangles

Joining us this afternoon, on the 5 o'clock hour, Guthrie P. Ramsey, Jr., author of The Amazing Bud Powell: Black Genius, Jazz History, and the Challenge of Bebop, (new from University of California Press.)

 " (Thelonious) Monk wrote for Bud. All his music was written for Bud Powell. All this piano music, he deliberately wrote for Bud because he figured Bud was the only one who could play it. He wrote for Bud just like a composer writes for a singer. And when you hear Bud play Monk's music, then you really hear something." ~ Kenny "Klook" Clarke, Swing to Bop: An Oral History of the Transition in Jazz in the 1940's
