Bley, Paul - Syndrome Syndrome
Jazz New - LP SLJ 1175 Savoy
1988 Original Vinyl Release. Recorded In 1963. Features Steve Swallow And Pete LaRoca. Mint. "Paul Bley's 1962-1963 Trio (Which Only Officially Came Together During A Couple Of Savoy Recording Sessions) Has Long Been Underrated, Partly Because Half Of Its Recordings Were Unreleased At The Time. Bley's Group With Bassist Steve Swallow And Drummer Pete Laroca Featured The Three Musicians Often Functioning As Equals During Group Improvisations That Were Generally Melodic But Never Too Predictable. On This LP (Which Is A Companion To Their Other Savoy Album "Floater"), The Group Performs Three Of Paul Bley's Tunes Plus Five By His Then-Wife Carla Bley (Who At The Time Was Quite Unknown). Although These Songs (Such As "Cousins," "King Korn" And "Vashkar") Never Caught On, The Music Is Quite Innovative And Occupies Its Own Niche In Jazz History."

Bley, Paul - Paul Bley Synthesizer Show Paul Bley Synthesizer Show
Jazz New - LP MSP 9033 Milestone
Sealed 1970 Original. Archival Quality Copy. "Considering The Legendary Horrors Of Getting This Early Electronic Equipment To Work On Tour, It Is No Surprise That These Studio Recordings Are Much More Successful Approximations Of What Bley And His Partner, Peacock, Were Striving For. Another Big Difference With The European Tour Involving This Couple And These Instruments That Came Along Just A Bit Later Was That Han Bennink Was Enlisted To Play Drums Overseas And Handled The Situation Completely Differently. Bley's Monophonic Keyboard, No Matter How Mightily It Might Squiggle, Was No Match For Bennink. The Drummers Featured Here Play More In The Manner Of A Typical Drummer In A Bley Piano Trio, Meaning Quietly And With Much Space, And There Are Even A Pair Of Acoustic Piano Trio Numbers Included To Boot. This Approach To Percussion Means The Synthesizer Doesn't Have To Compete To Be Heard, Leading To Some Really Marvelous Moments Of Barely Audible High Pitches On "The Archangel." Rhythm Section Playing Is Particularly Good Throughout The Recording, Even In The Case Of Musicians Such As Bassist Dick Youngstein And Drummer Steve Haas. The Rhythm Section Of Bassist Frank Tusa And Drummer Bobby Moses Also Contributes A Lot Of Really Beautiful Playing, The Drummer Shifting Rhythms Delicately And Playing A Terrific Solo On "Snakes." All The Drummers Featured Have An Uncanny Knack Of Knowing When To Lay Out, And Not Only In Deference To The Subtle Dynamics Of Electronic Music. The Acoustic Performance "Gary" Is Wonderfully Slow And Spacy. Jazz Critics Made Toast Of This Release When It Originally Came Out, And When The Electronic Sounds Featured Lost Their Original Novelty It Did Little To Add Value. Despite Interesting Moments Of Sound Experimentation, Most Of The Time Bley Uses The Synthesizer Simply To Play Sweet Sounding Melodies, So His Electronic Work Can Hardly Be Considered Some Kind Of Radical Innovation. Several Of The Tunes Such As "Parks" Are More Like Stuff Les Mccann Came Up With, But Without That Artist's Innovative Keyboard Overdubbing. Removed Several Decades From The Initial Hoopla About Electronic Instruments, This Music Can Really Be Appreciated As A Stunning Document Of Bley In Action, Bringing Past And Present Aspects Of His Creativity Into Something New, Developing Right In Front Of The Musicians That He Gets Such Superb Performances Out Of."

Bley, Paul - Barrage Barrage
Jazz Used - LP 1008 ECM
Beautiful 1964 Original. “Pianist Paul Bley's Early ESP Free Jazz Session Combines The Influence Of The Jazz Composer's Guild With Ornette Coleman. On Barrage, Bley Is Joined By Alto Saxophonist Marshall Allen (In One Of His Few Appearances Outside Of Sun Ra's Arkestra), Trumpeter Dewey Johnson (Who Would Go On To Play On Coltrane's Ascension The Following Year), Eddie Gomez On Bass, And Milford Graves Taking Care Of Percussion. All Compositions Are By Bley's Former Wife, Carla Bley, With A Definite Nod To Coleman's Hyperactive Stop-Start Punctuation (Paul Bley Had Fronted One Of The Earliest Incarnations Of The Original Coleman Quartet). Graves And Allen Are Especially Irrepressible Here, Making Barrage A Lost Free Jazz Classic.” – Al Campbell, AMG... more details

Bley, Paul - Live At Sweet Basil Live At Sweet Basil
Jazz New - LP 121 235 Soul Note
Sealed, Rare 1991 Original. Paul Bley, Piano; John Abercrombie, Guitar; Red Mitchell, Bass; Barry Altschul, Drums. Cuts Are: "Blues Waltz," "Lover Man," "When Will The Blues Leave?" And "My Old Flame." "Live At Sweet Basil Was Recorded Three Years After The Paul Bley Group's Hot Album. Both Albums Document Live Performances In New York City And Have Identical Instrumentation, Though The Only Member (Besides Bley) Constant In Both Lineups Is Drummer Barry Altschul. The Guitarist For Live At Sweet Basil Is John Abercrombie And The Bass Player Is Red Mitchell. The Group Again Visits Ornette Coleman's "When Will The Blues Leave," And Outside Of One Of The Pianist's Originals, The Set Focuses On Standards--"My Old Flame," "My Foolish Heart," And "Lover Man." The Last Of These Is A Particularly Gorgeous Rendition That Bley Starts Alone As A Slowly Unfolding Set Of Improvisations, Before Being Joined By The Rest Of The Ensemble." AMG.... more details
