Paul Bley


Paul Bley

Piano Solo
This special edition of the Festival will feature Paul Bley, another of those eminent Montreal musicians who have succeeded in making a name for themselves all over the world. Everywhere he goes, the red carpet is rolled out for the piano player who has made his reputation with daring improv. Though many Canadian musicians have made it big abroad, none have contributed as much as Bley to the evolution of the music. It was Bley, the accompanist of Jimmy Giuffre and Steve Swallow, who created such a furor thirty years ago with three landmark albums inspired by free jazz. And it was Bley who was one of the first to launch a solo career on the piano, borrowing as much from the classical as from the jazz repertoire. The unique style of which he is still considered the real originator was to inspire the likes of Keith Jarret and Chick Corea.
