As the title of the CD suggests, this is a tribute to Bud Powell. In spirit, more than a concern for replication, this piano-less trio sustains a noble effort throughout with reverence, ferocity, and grace. With a free jazz approach taken on this CD, the songs often stray from a strict interpretation of Powell‘s compositions. And I agree with this approach. If you want to listen to Bud Powell, then listen to Bud Powell. As Bud Powell fought his demons on the piano keys and detailed his deployment via his compositions, Crazeology takes a spirited and logical path by obliterating adherence to traditional harmonic and rhythmic concerns. This gives the CD an added edge, and contradicts the listener’s expectations, serving to fulfill Powell’s ability to astound his audience. This certainly keeps the listener guessing which, I think, is the point. Interpretations of classic Powell songs such as "Bouncing with Bud," "Tempus Fugit," "Dance of the Infidels," and "Un Poco Loco" are included, as well as a baffling untitled track which closes the CD. The track is seventeen minutes long, with the first half being silence, then around the 9:50 mark erupts into free jazz mania and instrumental overdubs. Bud Powell fans might not appreciate the loose interpretations supplied, but this CD should appeal to fans of free jazz.
