Paul Bley performing solo on a Bosendorfer Imperial at the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal in 1993.
Bley's piano playing spans seven decades.
He's played with Charlie Parker, Lester Young, Chet Baker, Charlie Mingus, Jimmy Giuffre, Sonny Rollins, Lee Konitz, Pat Metheny, and hundreds of others...
At home with bebop and free jazz, his solo piano playing spans the history of jazz. It's been said that the smaller the group the more expansive his music -
with his solo perfomances becoming 'orchestral.'
