everything about jazz pianist Bud Powell :

The Hard Bop Homepage : He was a very dynamic person on the instrument, and I liked that, the way he approached it, you know. I was inspired a lot by Bud. (McCoy Tyner)

@last.fm : Powell was perhaps the first pianist to vocalize on the piano, meaning that he transfered his vocalized improvisations directly through his hands to the instrument.
