For a first time on one CD, the first recordings of Paul Bley under his own name.

The musical life of Canadian pianist Paul Bley has been a something of success story since the beginning. He made these first recordings under his own name in the bebop idiom with such great artists as Charles Mingus, Art Blakey, Percy Heath, Peter Ind or Al Levitt but his advanced concept and playing became soon associated with the burgeoning avant-garde and free jazz movement, which he has gone on to develop throughout his life and music. For over fifty years, Bley has remained on the cutting edge of creative music and has always been drawn to the most innovative players around.
