Chris Comer talked to the influential and iconic free-jazz pianist Paul Bley upon the release of his first trio recording with Gary Peacock and Paul Motian in over 35 years, Not Two, Not One on ECM in April 2000. Since the 1950's Paul Bley's career has spanned many stylistic changes in jazz and Mr. Bley has a unique perspective on the ongoing history of jazz. In this lengthy interview Chris and Paul discuss the roots of free jazz, Bley's role in the timeline of jazz history and his collaborations with other well known jazz musicians. Paul Bley is scheduled for a new piano-solo release on ECM records later this summer 2007 and will likely talk to Chris on his program again as well.
