Notes

First edition. Superb biographical essay on the legendary pianist Bud Powell by his friend and Paris protector. Paudras's relationship with the troubled Powell, as portrayed in this book, became the basis for Bernard Tavernier's film Round midnight. The book forms a pair with his archival essay on Charlie Parker,To Bird with love. This copy inscribed by Paudras on the half-title to historian, record-producer, and pre-eminent collector of jazz photography, Frank Driggs; "Pays off old scores! To Frank Driggs with my gratitude for his great help and contribution in this tribut sic to Bud, Friendship always. Francis Paudras 24/10/86." An uncommon book, particularly so signed, or, as in this case, inscribed.
